[OpenIndiana-discuss] Java 8

Just downloaded Java 8 for my laptop ... It's supposed to be much better
for multi-core systems, intelligent and easier to use/program, etc.
Started SQL Developer and apart from warnings that it might not be
compatible it worked fine.

However it's worth noting that it's 64bit only for Solaris platforms.

This might seem a great idea, but the browser plugin and "Java Web Start"
were 32bit apps, and have been removed.  If anyone is using either of these
features you're probably stuck on Java 7, at least until someone compiles
the OpenJDK version :)
