Alternatively, if it is for development purposes only, you may want to
consider using JBoss EAP 6.x instead of JBoss AS 7.1.1. The root cause
of the incompatibility has been fixed there (and in WildFly):
You can get JBoss EAP from here:
Then you can unzip it to your favorite directory and use it during
installation of oVirt Engine:
# engine-setup --jboss-home=/whatever/jboss-eap-6.3
It should work well with Java 8. If it doesn't work it is good to know,
as we will need to fix it eventually.
Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I ended up installing
openJDK-1.7 alongside the stock 1.8 and it's working again for me.
I'll try to give those other JBoss versions a try soon though.
