java support

we are currently using the java jre 1.7.0_80 and now the java 7 going to end of life in the mendix 4.7.1. we know the mendix version is not supported by mendix just we are asking a suggestion that mendix 4.7.1 can support java 8

To be honest i don't think anyone tried that before or will try in the future. I guess there is only one way to find out: by trying it and see if it works.

Now would be a good time to move to Mendix 9.
