Re: [DISCUSS] java 9 and the future of cassandra on the jdk


Java 8 was marked as EOL in the middle of last year, I hope we wouldn't
require it for Cassandra 4.  At this point I feel like we should already be
targeting Java 10 at a minimum.

Personally I'd prefer not to tie our releases to any vendor / product /
package's release schedule.
