I'm not amused by #openjdk these days.
maven won't deploy with java-11 because
> javadoc: error - The code being documented uses modules but the packages defined in http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/ are in the unnamed module.
and it won't deploy with java-8, because
> Execution default-test of goal XXX failed: The forked VM terminated without saying properly goodbye. VM crash or System.exit called ?
java-7 can't be installed because of dependency issues
and that's again when the hacking starts... 🤦
@martin Java 11 is a bit of a mess. Up until 8 they preserved Java backwards compatibility so that (almost) all code would run unchanged. Now, it's a different story, and a lot of complex software can't run anymore.
In particular, ABCL can't run on anything newer than 8, and probably will never be able to.
