Currently DB Connect documentation states that it only works with Java 6 (already past end-of-life) and Java 7 (end-of-life in April 2015). Our organization will not allow Java 7 apps on our network once security patches are no longer available for it. Does anyone at Splunk know when support for Java 8 will be available?
While Shane might not be having any issues, according to Splunk, Java 8 is still not supported. See their documentation as well as this item:
So I'd also like to know the real answer to the above question: when will DBX support Java 8? Thank you.
