|Re: [jakartaee-platform-dev] Java SE 8 or 11 for Jakarta EE 9?|
Because claiming compatibility you have to state which JVM you ran the tests on and afaik all certified on JDK 8.
However it is possible to run the application server on JDK 11 but test suite on JDK 8.

How can a vendor say its product is Jakarta EE and Java 11 compatible without being able to run the TCK on it? ;)
In my opinion, Java 11 should be the minimum required version, but specs and TCK) must stay compatible with Java 8, strongly suggesting (but not mandating) products to support both versions. Existing vendors will support them both anyway, as they already have clients using Java 8 which need to keep their applications running. But from a marketing perspective the move would be a step forward.
In the end nothing will change but the announcement.
