One thought on “Red Hat JBoss EAP 6.4 now supports Java 1.8 / JDK 8

  1. Hi there – I am having trouble with the following combination and like to bring to your attention. When I tried to start JBoss EAP 6.4 app server from within Eclipse LUNA using JDK 1.8.0_45, the JBoss app server seems to run into some infinite loop. But this problem goes away immediately if I just kick off the standalone.bat launch script. Not sure whether you have similar situations and would appreciate any pointers. Vielen dank!!
