Sencha Cmd - Future Java Version Requirements
Hi All -
We are evaluating Java 7 API's for some of the upcoming new features of Sencha Cmd and wanted to get some feedback from you, the community, about the potential impact of requiring JRE 7. We realize many or maybe most of you have current JRE's but this is not always the case in some corporate contexts.
The release of JRE 7u4 is most important to Sencha Cmd due to the inclusion of Java FX 2.1 with its Webview based on WebKit (see http://www.drdobbs.com/jvm/java-7u4-...-712/232901064).
In general, however, Java 7's new FileSystem API is also potentially very useful for things like file system monitoring.
Your feedback is most welcome.

My 2 cents on this...
I work for an Insurance Co. And we're pretty far behind. 1.6 U30 is our standard at the moment. That being said, I say go for it. I am running Jenkins, Artifactory and some other tools off of custom build servers and we are keeping those up to date (newest release of 1.7). The version Cmd uses shouldn't concern many people seeing as its a build time requirement and not a runtime requirement.

Imho 1.6 would be the way to go.
We are deploying our application for Java 1.6.x and for consistency reasons, compiling and building is done using the same Java version. Requiring 1.7 just for Sencha Cmd would be a showstopper for us.
