[SERVER-2315] Fix tests for Java 11 Created: 2018/09/17 Updated: 2018/12/19 Resolved: 2018/10/31
|Fix Version/s:||SERVER 6.1.0|
|Remaining Estimate:||Not Specified|
|Time Spent:||Not Specified|
|Original Estimate:||Not Specified|
|Release Notes Summary:|| (With this ticket resolved we were able to begin testing Java 11 in travis-ci which gave us the confidence to announce "experimental" support for Java 11).
Puppet Server now has experimental support for Java 11 (and all Java versions between it and 8, inclusive). This is tested by relatively comprehensive low level tests but has not gone through high level, packaged acceptance tests. Consequently, we consider this support "experimental" with full support coming later in 2019 for whatever is the latest long term supported version of Java.
|QA Risk Assessment:||Needs Assessment|
Puppet Server's test suite makes use of HexBinaryAdapter here we will need to remove that from the test because it will be removed in Java 11.
This was part of, and cloned from, the original ticket on Java 11 support, the below work was merged already
Java 11 will remove modules deprecated in Java 9 that we currently use (indirectly) to run puppetserver.
That PR includes discussion of how to update Puppet Server's code and tests when we upgrade.
