[OSGeo-Discuss] GeoServer 2.9.0 Released

Hello Jody,
I have had no luck in running GeoServer under Java 8. I keep seeing on the website that it is compatible but that’s not the case with me.
For instance, I just downloaded the WAR file of this new release and put in Tomcat and restarted but it doesn’t run.
I have other webapps in my Tomcat installation and they run fine. Any clue on what’s going on?
My java below:

PS C:\Web\Tomcat\bin> java -version
java version "1.8.0_91"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_91-b14)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.91-b14, mixed mode)
PS C:\Web\Tomcat\bin>

Your help will be much appreciated.
