OpenJDK 8 transition

Hi all,

We are reaching the end of the OpenJDK 8 transition, we are down to one
package failing to build with the new version, and not the least since
it's Eclipse. There is also a handful of patches available for other
packages waiting for their maintainers or a NMU [1].

I think we should now consider switching the default JDK. There is still
some time to migrate Eclipse before the next release.

I suggest that we do the switch the first week of September. OpenJDK 7
will remain available, but ultimately we aim for its removal in Stretch
to lower the maintenance burden.

What do you think?
