Customer is aware that Alfresco 4.2.2 is certified JDK 7 support. However he would like to know what is the timeline for supporting Java 8 and with which version of Alfresco? Customer requests for support of JDK 1.8/ Java 8 with Alfresco.
Oracle has announced that Java SE 7 will no longer be updated publicly after April 2015. http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/eol-135779.html (Java SE 7 End of Public Updates Notice) so my assumption is that Alfresco will need to move to support Java 8 before then and I'm surprised it is not on the road map yet. I think a new improvement jira is required.
