So I came across the need to implement my project on a server that is currently running Debian 7 (wheezy).
With that, I'm now facing an issue with openjdk-8 installation, since it's not default for debian 7. I can't seem to find a way to install openjdk-8 on debian 7 system, and since I'm not experienced with debian nor I know the machine, I would like to keep the current system version.
On my research then, I came across the support matrix for Elasticsearch https://www.elastic.co/support/matrix
wich says that Elasticsearch 5.6 is supported by Debian 7 but it is not supported by java 7, only java 8.
So, how do I go about it, do I need to install Debian 8 (jessie) in order to have java 8 or is there another way?
Thanks in advance
