Re: [tycho-dev] Abandoning Java < 11 support for tycho-surefire-plugin?

Hi Mickael,


I think currently the OSGi Booter Projekt also is Java 1.5 compliant I think there where some concerns because then you can't run tests with older JDKs but in general I think we can require J11 for tests as well.

Hi all,

As I'm looking at migrating tycho-surefire-plugin to newer JUnit 5 compatible surefire, I realized it's a bit simpler if we stop supporting running tests against Java < 11 and make JavaSE-11 the BREE for the Tycho's Surefire plugins that are injected into the test application. I think it's relatively harmless as we already require Java 11 to run Tycho itself and this default Java installation is used by tycho-surefire-plugin (unless configured differently).

Do you see  further issue dropping support for running older JVM with Tycho Surefire? Or can I just proceed?
