    Hey, I want to update my server to 1.8. I compiled the jar for spigot, but how do I make my 1.7 plugins work with 1.8?

    Some just work with 1.8. Some don't
    I don't know how to convert them, though.
    Sorry about that.

    With all due respect,

    If you only used the Bukkit API, your plugin should work for 1.8.

    If you used NMS(Native Minecraft Source) in your plugin, then you would NEED to update your plugin.

    What you can do is remove the old version of Bukkit(or Spigot) from your build path, then add the new 1.8 jar to your build path(s), if any error comes up, you can easily fix them.

    If you are just using the Bukkit API, it will most likely work and won't need any updating. Build the with the lowest version that you are willing to support.

    I find that the Bukkit API is easier than NMS, so you should be fine.

    So I can just switch to bukkit 1.8 and all 1.7 plugins will work?

    @cmz1675 Most. If the plugin was built with the Bukkit API and doesn't hook into any of NMS code, I don't see why it won't work.

    @bwfcwalshy @cmz1675 Some of the plugins that didn't work on 1.8 originally have been updated to support it. Like Essentials. I still build my plugins against the Bukkit API for 1.7 because the plugins a make don't use any of the 1.8 features and will still work on 1.8.

    1.8 made changes to spawners and items frames which could affect plugins.

    Alright I will try this. If most of my plugins don't work, is there a Bukkit build that will allow 1.8 users to join Bukkit 1.7?

    Yes! Search the Spigot forums. It is a hacked protocol build.

    Thanks! I don't mind if there is no 1.8 features all I want is 1.8 users to join 1.7! :D

    Can you give me a quick tutorial/ download link for the hacked protocol build please. :D

    @cmz1675 You can't with the whole DMCA issue. Idk if there is a version you can compile yourself like the 1.8 builds. Search the Spigot forums.
