Team: Server
Release Notes: Enhancement
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.

We need to update our version of liberator to the version here:


That PR includes discussion of how to update Puppet Server's code and tests when we upgrade.
