Re: [jakartaee-platform-dev] [jakartaee-spec-project-leads] Java 8 vs Java 11 Compatibility requirements

My preference would be option #2 with our TCK effort focused primarily on JDK 8 with occasional Java 11 runs.  We may get lucky and pass both, but let's focus on 8 for now.

In my opinion, a more rapid release cadence than Java EE is a key objective for Jakarta EE. I also agree that most people are still on Java SE 8. It would actually be even more impressive to have a Jakarta EE 9.1 release that features Java SE 11 support.

Agree with Reza and Dmitry.

As Kevin notes later, we could potentially see Compatible Implementations pass the TCK using Java 11 with no issues.  If we do end up having to address issues in the TCK that prevent Java 11 runs and there are any significant changes, we should consider a 9.1 release as it could be a great way to show progress.
