Non-fatal (?) Java 7 runtime requirement #15152

Software is coming out that requires JDK 7, such as #15148.

We'll need some sort of requirement or caveats or something for this, as we don't want to be flooded with bug reports from users (like me) who only have JDK6 on a machine.


Also #12227.


Closing because I lost interest.

@cooljeanius You should consider implementing this if you're interested.


I haven't ever written a requirement for Homebrew before (the only pull request I've submitted has been #16248 which was to add a brew-configure shell script); how would I go about doing that? As far as I can tell, the wiki only describes writing new formulae; it doesn't describe how to write new requirements...

Edit: @f104952 seems to be a good starting point to use as a template...
