Re: [platform-dev] Allowing bundles to target Java 17 for 2022-06 release

+1 for moving to Java 17 for BREE.

IIRC on past BREE upgrades various sub-parts of Platform held back on older versions. Is the proposal to remove those special cases for the move to Java 17?

Hey everyone,
Our test dependencies (e.g. reddeer), our build tool (tycho) and etc. already require Java 17 thus the whole releng is using Java 17 now with no dependency on Java 11 anymore.
Due to that there are already test bundles that target Java 17 and use Java 17 language features. Feel free to do so even more.
As automated Java 11 testing is impossible nowadays I think it's time for us to allow bundles to go to Java 17 BREE after March release.
I welcome constructive discussion which should include how and who is going to take care of Java 11 testing/verification if there is disagreement for this move.
