Subject Re: Next steps for Groovy and Java 9?
Date Wed, 04 Oct 2017 14:25:28 GMT
I would say a good step forward is to report errors people see with running
Groovy on JDK 9 on JIRA right now. Because Groovy _does run_ on JDK 9. Only
it does with lots of unfriendly warnings (and will stop working with JDK
10/18.3). If there are showstoppers, we're not aware of them.
