Subject Re: Building using Java 11?
Date Wed, 11 Dec 2019 17:30:42 GMT
I'm thinking that's the "problem" ... If I target Java 8 then the "--add-modules" flag is not
supported, but apparently that is what is required (now) in Java 11 to make the package visible
... So, I'm thinking we're going to have a problem going forward.... In other words, we can't
build with Java 11 unless we target Java 9+....??!!

As far as I know packages are mostly not removed fro JDK but been
hiding. They must be made visible via Java 9 module config.
