Re: [jakartaee-platform-dev] [glassfish-dev] JakartaEE 9.1


GF6 (EE 9) will stay on JDK 8, but GF6.1 (EE 9.1) will move to at least JDK 11. The entire purpose of EE 9.1 is to introduce JDK 11 support, so there should be at least one implementation that validates that. Of course we could call it GF 7 if that's more appropriate.

Kind regards,

I am not in favor of supporting both JDK 8 and JDK 11.
Especially, most of the users are not ready for moving to JDK11. Therefore, I prefer to support only JDK8 for GF6.
But for the following major releases, it is perfectly reasonable to support only JDK11 and above.

I just read the minutes here Jakarta EE Platform Call ( and in particular the comment “Verify with the GlassFish team if GF will be able to certify on both Java SE 8 and Java SE 11”
From my perspective as project lead for GlassFish I would rather NOT support certifying on both JDK 8 and JDK 11. I’ve CC’d in the glassfish-dev list in case anybody there wants to chime in.
