Java 8 comes with a different JavaScript engine ("Nashorn") to that included in Java7 ("Rhino"). As JobScheduler can use the JavaScript engine provided with Java for shell scripts, it is important that users wishing to use Java 8 in future JobScheduler versions ensure that any scripts they may have are capable of being executed with the Nashorn engine.

We have an FAQ about the Changeover to Java 8 which details how you can prepare for this changeover and recommend that all JobScheduler users with JavaScript scripts in their jobs take appropriate action.
