I am creating a hello world lambda function in AWS. I selected runtime as Java8 as java is one of the languages supported for lambda function, but it says The code editor does not support the Java 8 runtime. What can be the issue? thanks.
Thanks. I was thinking that since lambda expressions have suport for Java,Node.js etc , the editor which it uses impicitly also has support for them.I had checked for NodeJS and it was showing the function code.
For Java 8 it creates the function and I can click on test successfully but I could not see the code it generated. May be I can open it in some other way.Also will check for Java instead of Java 8 too. It is bit surprising that editor doesnt support Java 8 when AWS supports Java programing language.
The better way I see to do in Java is by creating a jar using Eclipse Maven project and uploading the jar. Not sure though on why the editor does not support Java 8 despite AWS lambdas supporting Java 8. For now I will learn by doing using Eclipse.
