It has just come to my attention that you might have problems using Java Web Start applications (like SunEntry) if you upgrade to Java 8. It does not seem to recognize the AAVSO as a "trusted authority" even though we have a certificate that is designed to prove just that. In any case, I would recommend that you hold off upgrading to Java 8 until I have time to investigate further and come up with a workaround if necessary.
