Is PlayFramework supporting Java9

Hello there,

We would like to upgrade to Java 9 but I haven’t found anywhere if it’s said that PlayFramework supports it and how to proceed. What’s the state of it?

it works with j9 classpath (if you either use the jaxb module or add jaxb-api as a jar, maybe that will be lifted with 2.7.x), but there is no support for jpms

It’s something we’d like to get going, but there are still some warnings with Java 9.

Java 11 is due out later this year. It’s a “long term support” release, i.e. supported for more than just 6 months. I think we’ll want to get Java 9/10/11 going for the release of Java 11 at the very least.
