Notes on the new Java Release Cycle

As of March 20, 2018 a new six-month Java release scheme has been adopted and Java 10 is the currently supported rapid release version. There will be three years between a LTS release and the next and Java 11 will be the next LTS after Java 8(LTS). Java 10 support ends on the same date that support for Java 11 begins the day of its release, planned for September 25, 2018.

BootsFaces want to support each Java runtime released after the minimum Java version used to build the library. However, to prevent too many Java subdirectories in the project root, we created the legacyJava directory, that will collect the build scripts specific for non-LTS runtimes. This means that our official build will only include non obsolete LTS targets but you will have the option of building for not non-LTS Java targets using commands like follows:

./gradlew :legacyJava:java7:defaultJar
./gradlew :legacyJava:java9:defaultJar
./gradlew :legacyJava:java10:defaultJar
