      Description

      The Hadoop Java Versions page makes no mention of Java 7.

      http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/HadoopJavaVersions

      Java 6 is EOL as of this month ( http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/java_6.xml ) and that's after extending the date twice: https://blogs.oracle.com/henrik/entry/java_6_eol_h_h While Oracle has recently released a number of security patches, chances are more security issues will come up and we'll be left running clusters we can't patch if we stay with Java 6.

      Does Hadoop support Java 7 and if so could the docs be changed to indicate that?
