Subject Java version (Oracle - OpenJDK) support
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2018 09:04:25 GMT
Hi all,

Oracle8 will have it's support end in January. They changed there release
drastically.
A good article on that:
https://dev.karakun.com/java/2018/06/25/java-releases.html

Long story short: From January, no Oracle JDK version can be used in PROD
environment without a license. End every release, even LTS (next one is
version 11) will only have a 6 month public update period.

We should also decide on the supported versions of Java.

My opinion: We should make sure ZK is compatible with Oracle 8 and 11, and
also openJDK 8 and 11.

But after that, every 6 month, there will be a new Oracle Java version
which we should support.

What do you think? What version to support? What about 3.4 now that 3.5 is
getting close to stable? (I think fix 3.4 on Oracle 11 and that's it - 3.5
stable should be out by the time 12 comes out).

Once we have an agreement, we should create jira's to fix Java11 problems.

Regards,
Norbert
