Add official support of Java 8. This means support in all modules:
IMPORTANT: we still support Java 7, so existing testing on Java 7 must continue.
This is mostly a QA task - start testing also on Java 8. The main complication will be Server, where we need to test also on Java 8 but keep existing Java 7 tests. Idea is to alternate testing on Java 7 and 8, so that the total run time of server tests is not 2 times longer.
Additionally on Server, some containers might not support Java 8 yet or might require a different version.
Please create subtasks / related issues for parts of this.
