-----------------------------------

             Summary: Add support for multi-release jars for JDK9+
                 Key: LOG4J2-1745
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1745
             Project: Log4j 2
          Issue Type: New Feature
         Environment: JDK9 and future JDK releases
            Reporter: Matt Sicker


[JEP 238|http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/238] adds multi-release jars which allow a jar to contain
multiple versions of a class depending on which version of the JVM/JDK is being used at runtime.
This will help support for new APIs in JDK9+ so that we don't need to rely on reflection to
access newer APIs dynamically. This is also useful in performance-critical sections (e.g.,
LOG4J2-1359).
