Hi PMC, 

we have a lovely discussion on regarding ecj starting to require Java 17 runtime and dropping Java 11 runtime support in 4.28.

Would be nice if we could have PMC resolution/decision on this question soon.

Short summary of the problem:

Eclipse 4.28 is going to support Java 17 runtime only (see

ECJ, as standalone compiler library, could in theory still stay and support execution on Java 11.

The controversial proposal that requires resolution is: ECJ released with 4.28 would also require at least Java 17 for execution.

Note: Compilation *targets* are not affected by that, ecj will still support compilation down to Java 8 JLS.

Kind regards,
