I run the 'mvn install' with open jdk 8, yet the plugin produced sill only works on 11. I removed the requirements for 11 so the plugin gets loaded by eclipse but fails since the binary is only compatible with 11. Not sure how the binary could have 11 code since I built it with JDK 8. 2020-03 runs fine on 8 so I was expecting that compiling the plugin for 8 should be straight forward. I hope.

Looks like I fixed the issue. It turns out that the eclipse build environment overrides not only the pom which would be expected but it also overrides the manifest. By changing my eclipse project to use 8 I was able to get a clean 8 build.
