      Description

      Now that Java 6 is going in Out-of-Life (and support without paying for it) it's time to update dependencies and require Java 7 as a minimum version to build and run Pivot Applications.
      Of course maintenance branch 2.0.x will stay with Java 6 as requirements.

      Some related info:

      And then, verify if disable (not delete for now) existing jobs on Jenkins that builds the trunk with Java 6 ... anyway they could be useful to see if we have some incompatibility with Java 6.

      Then, we can even remove few little tricks due to bugs (not fixed) in Java 6.
