Does tomcat 6.0 support Java 8

Does tomcat 6.0 support Java 8? I currently have Java 7 installed
I also tried pulling data using Briefcase 1.8 and was unsuccessful. Is it because of the version 7 java?

According to, Tomcat 6 is designed for Java 5 and later.

Briefcase not pulling data is probably not a Java problem. If you provide a detailed error message or a description of how to reproduce the problem, then we will be better equipped to help.

Hi Anokwa.
Thanks for your reply...
Currently, our data is being pulled after increasing the RAM of the local server from 6GB to 20GB & replacing Briefcase v1.4 with v1.6.
But I'd tried using the latest Briefcase v1.9, but found out that it only works on Java8 and yet I have Java7. So I was wondering if updating to Java8 would work with Tomcat 6, and you answered my question (Tomcat 6 is designed for Java 5 and later)
Thanks again
