Using JDK 1.7 or 1.8 for plugin development

I plan to use javafx8 which comes bundled with JDK8 for developing the UI of the cinematic editor plugin. I need to know if using JDK 8 for plugin development would not create issues when people install and use it.

you mean netBeans 8, right :p?

yeah. NetBeans 8 to be precise. The 1.7 is to attract more people :stuck_out_tongue:

Sure it will, the SDK uses Java 7 and NetBeans 7.3. Your plugin won’t run for 99% of users.

oh! so using JDK 7 should be fine then.

Wel javafx works fine with 1.7 usually.

so from that post and this one, you go with java 7.

Too much suspense. :stuck_out_tongue: . I’m hoping its 1.7. I’ll be able to use javafx2x then !

It is 1.7 reread the last post.
