Target Java version for bots

Hi all! I broke the arm so, i back for awhile:) I cannot find actual required java version - it still 1.6 or i can compile my bot with 1.7?

I'm using 1.8, so I don't think 1.7 would be a problem.

Sorry to hear about your arm, hope it heals quickly.

The more important question is which java version is run by clients of a rumble. If your bot is compiled with newer version and the rumble client runs with older java, it will simply refuse to start a battle with your bot. So you will get your stats slower if ever.

I personally run everything with version 7 of the open jdk.

Ok, thanks, i just understand that best way to determine max possible java version is to check class version of few active bots

You compile bots with target version 1.8 or run rrc on java 8?
Thanks, actually it happen 4 weeks ago, so i hope, that arm immobilization will be cancelled next week
