This ticket's history is already confusing. Maybe it is better to close this and open new one for dna's issue?

With https://github.com/igniterealtime/Openfire/pull/626 we should be able to build with Java 8 (with source/target flags set to 1.7 for compatibility), and run with Java 7.

We are back building with Java 8 on debian thanks to Guus.
