Trying to get started with Google App Engine - does it work with Java 8?
I've followed the instructions on this page:
Selecting 'Java', I successfully completed the Maven build, but when I visit localhost:8080 nothing is running.
The instructions say "make sure you have Java 7 JDK installed" however I have just installed Java 8 JDK.
Do I need to separately install Apache?
Short answer, no. They will integrate it over time, but for now if you use it, it will cause you a lot of errors. I would recommend against it
Also take note of user7610's answer below :). It is as of now the only way to have Java 8 on the Cloud Platform
