Run HANA Cloud Connector with Java 1.8
Hana Cloud connector is compatible with Java 1.6 and 1.7
Below are the steps I followed to run cloud connector with Java 1.8
I did download Hana Cloud connector 184.108.40.206 for windows
And I have Java 1.8 on my system
Change go.bat file inside – sapcc-220.127.116.11-windows-x64 folder
Not sure why go.bat was not given with 1.8 support, as most of the functionality works fine
From an consumer point of view I see your point.
The software seems to work on 1.8 so why did SAP not officially support it?
Official support means testing and validation to ensure that not just "most" functions work, but that everything works as it should.
SAP development of course follows up on these topics continuously and I would expect an official support for more recent JVM versions in the future.
But as of now, making the modification you described and using the unsupported JVM means: you're unsupported.
In case something doesn't work as expected, the first and reasonable request from support might be: please try and see if the problem is present when using a supported version.
Yes I agree with you..
