Java 7 SE reaches its end, Java 8 becomes the norm

Published on Aug 01, 2022

Certainly Java 7 has outlived its usefulness, but now it’s time to prepare for the future. Oracle has been trying to implement Java 8 and 11 and make it the norm. However, there are always developers who continue to use Java 7, and 8. Accordingly, the company is ceasing support for the old version. Java 7 has reached the end of its lifecycle, according to the company. As a result, this version will no longer receive extended support from the company.

As of July 29, 2022, Java 7 will no longer be supported by the Java Community. Although 7 itself will not receive security patches or updates, all applications running on it will continue to work. Depending on your workload requirements, upgrade to 8 or 11 to minimize risk and potential security vulnerabilities.

The canonical guide to follow is the Oracle JDK Migration Guide. The migration guide addresses all Java specification incompatibilities and JDK implementation incompatibilities. Most of these incompatibilities are edge cases. You should make an investigation when a warning or error occurs.”

It should be possible to run most applications without modifying them on version 8. Using 8 without recompiling the code is the first thing to try. Getting warnings and errors from the execution is the point of just executing. Using this approach, an application will run faster on 8 with the least amount of effort.”

Currently, the company offers support for Java SE 8 and Java SE 11. Users opting for these versions will receive full Java runtime support.
