Comment (by edso):

 surely easiest would be to upgrade disc/system jre from java8 LTS to
 java11 LTS. personally i'd say it's about time. lot's of current libraries
 already do not support java8 anymore. newer runtimes run older bytecode of

 for an overview of release/support dates


 question is really, os using java8 just precaution or are there other (may
 be older?) java software packages on the disc acting up with jre newer
 than 8?
