|This was a user question. Below is our answer:
1) 7.x and 8.x would continue to work with java 1.4.2. This is the java version that we released 7.x/8.x with and tested with.
2) In general java is very good at maintaining backward compatibility. So, 7.x and 8.x likely would even work with java 1.5 or 1.6. Many of our users have done so. However, we have never tested or supported this.
3) Even though 7.x and 8.x would continue to work with java 1.4.2, any updates to your Operating system could likely bring up incompatibilities with java 1.4.2.
4) Java 1.4.2 supported OS are listed here:
Finally, 7.x and 8.x are well past their EOL and are no longer supported by us.
