BTW: since Java 9 already got replaced by 10, investigations should 
probably continue using 10.

Not 100% sure about the current OpenJDK policy but it seems starting 
from Java 9 the project provides official binaries and those are in 
patch version sync with the ones from Oracle. So I think there will be 
no more free (as in beer) releases for 9. Of course vendoes like Red Hat 
can decide to provide builds on their own.

And btw: Java 10 will be replaced by 11 in September. Java 11 is the 
next LTS release.
