    Update: The post has been updated with answer from Louis Bergelson and follow up comments

    Answer from Louis Bergelson:

    • We test against 8 and 11 so I would expect either of those to work with out any weird issues.

      I can't guarantee that 17 is without problems, but I think if you're running it and the output looks reasonable than there's nothing I know of that would cause subtle errors. You'll definitely have issues with things like building the documentation, but I suspect that if something runs without crashing it's probably ok. It's not officially supported right now though, so it's a bit of use at your own risk.

    Hope this will help all.

    Thanks for posting this update Anand! We will be updating those documents once the upgrade to Java 11 is officially final.
