tabula java requirements v6 or v7.

See original GitHub issue

Please add to the documentation of tabluapy that tabula requires java 6 or java 7 only!

I spent many hours trying to diagnose why I could not get tabula-py to run. I had java but it was not the correct version.

From the tabula readme

Using Tabula

First, make sure you have a recent copy of Java installed. You can download Java at . Tabula requires a Java Runtime Environment compatible with Java 6 or Java 7.

To hack around other java versions installed I prepend the correct path to java 7 I installed

import sys
b = sys.path
sys.path = ['/opt/java/jre1.7.0_79/bin'] + b

And can now extract the tables. This would have saved a lot of time if requirements said java 6 or java 7

Note this issue is resolved with the recently released Tabula 0.9.2.

I added confirmed Java versions on README

Oracle Java 9 is not released yet, what is more, it is a matter of tabula-java, not tabula-py. I think it is enough to add the confirmed versions.
