JBoss AS 7.2. does not start when the JDK is >= 8. It just hangs indefinitely without any error message being displayed. This is not a camunda problem, JDK 8 is simply not a supported environment of JBoss AS 7.
This happens to alot of people running engine-it/webapps-it and not knowing about it.
- Use maven-enforcer rule to show a comprehensive error message when the user runs the testsuite with JDK Version not supported by JBoss AS 7
