I have a problem with the gradle demon it’s using MaxPermSize in it’s defalt jvm args and Permgen was removed in jdk 8 and it’s a Unrecognized vm option in jdk 9 it’s getting added here

Everything fine with the usual three projects. I’m a bit late due to heat fatigue. :stuck_out_tongue:

This is being tracked as GRADLE-3286. There are actually a number of issues that need to be addressed with regards to JDK 9 support which we have organized under this design spec.
