As far as I know ZK is running fine on JDK11, even 3.4.
We have a problem with Kerberos tests on 3.4, but we can fix them.

I can add that as far as I know there will not be any 'Oracle JDK 12" GA,
but only OpenJDK will be released to GA from Oracle

Ok to me

We can consider also dropping support for JDK6 on 3.4 branch, this is
actually the problem
