Hi All,

As some have found out, there is an issue with v1.1.0 running on java 8 which is causing ASpace to not launch.

The problem is that the jasper reports module require a library that compiles the Jasper jrxml files, which is does with a library called jdt-compiler-3.1.1.jar, which does not run on Java 8.

So, you'll know you have a problem right off the bat, as the application will not launch. This does not affect users running earlier versions of java.

If you want to run Java 8, you must remove this jdt-compiler-3.1.1.jar file from you lib directory AND you much be using the Java 8 JDK ( not simply the JRE), since this includes some libraries Jasper falls back on to compile reports.

I'm looking into adding a version of the jdt-compiler that is Java 8 friendly. I'm also adding more test to our Jenkins CI test server to test different java versions to ensure we don't run into this again.

Sorry about any inconvenience. Let me know if you have any questions...

Best, Chris.
