Play 2.3.0 was the first version to support Java 8.

You can find a 2.2 to 2.3 migration guide here:
and a 2.1 to 2.2 migration guide here:

I should add that we would recommend that you continue to update to a more recent version from there. Even Play 2.3.x is several years old and no longer receives bug fixes or security fixes.
