We’re currently supposed to support Oracle 12.x (I say supposed since our automated tests currently test on Oracle 11g but that’s an issue that we need to fix). I’m proposing that we stop supporting it officially and instead to officially support Oracle 19c since that’s the latest version of the Oracle Database (see https://github.com/oracle/docker-images/tree/master/OracleDatabase/SingleInstance).
If we want to do more (i.e. support 2 versions - should we?) then we could also support Oracle 18c.
We’ve been testing XWiki on Java 11 for some time now and it seems to work fine. Since Java 11 is a LTS, I’m proposing that we move to support Java 11 as the main supported version (we should probably still test for Java8 too to make sure we don’t use pure Java 11 features in our sources).
So to make it clear:
- Minimal version: Java 8
- Supported versions: Java 8 & Java 11.
