Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] [eclipse-pmc] Proposed schedule for JDK 9

For Kepler, WTP created a patch to allow for Java 8 usage.  That patch worked hand-in-hand with the Platform's JDT patch that supported Java 8.  Those were announced at the same time.  Developers could download and install those, and then use Java 8 to develop artifacts within WTP on Eclipse Kepler.  I would assume that the same would be true for Java 9 and Eclipse Mars

By the way, in such case, why not just release a new version of JDT and WTP with Java X support rather than creating a patch feature?
It seems to me that it would be best for most (committers, releng, adopter projects, users) to have it as a regular update than a patch feature.
