    Possibly unrelated, but what is standing out to me is that you're using Java 1.8 with Pentaho 4.8.
    I thought I remembered some compatibility issues between the two, and was able to find this previous thread on the forums: (see second and third posts).
    You might try either
    1) try Java 1.6 or 1.7 with Pentaho 4.8 or
    2) download a version of Pentaho that supports Java 1.8
