Are there plans to support Java 9 or 10? Public updates for Java 8, the last 32-bit version, end for Windows in September.
Java 8 stops receiving public updates in September 2020.
Java 10 stops receiving public updates in September 2018.
Stick with Java 8 until Java 11 is around - the LTS version.
To add to what gdt said. Here’s the ticket for Java 11 support (still has some issues) https://issues.igniterealtime.org/browse/SPARK-2017
Here’s another for 64-bit https://issues.igniterealtime.org/browse/SPARK-2016
Both should probably be combined at some point as there won’t be 32-bit versions of newer Java. Anyway, unless someone helps with patches i think we will stay with Java 8 for a while.
Thank you both for correcting my ignorance!
