> HI Henri,
> I recommend you try this:
> - for jdk8 use the "current/old" build system until jdk8 officially switches over to the new build system and deprecates the old one.

> - for jigsaw use the "current/old" build system until jigsaw does a merge from jdk8 with the new build system that is capable of supporting jigsaw and its modules.

> - for lambda use the new build system (it's what the developers of lambda have chosen to use, thats about official as it gets :-) ). By the time lambda gets integrated into jdk8 the "current/old" system may or may not be deprecated. If you have any issues building on certain platforms i would strongly recommend reporting such issues to the build infra team.

Ok, I'll follow your advice, keep old/current for jdk8/jigsaw and
switch lambda to new build system.

Good to know
