I have seen a few reports regarding people having problems running Gradle with Java 9, such as here and here etc. However I see nothing in terms of replies, plans and/or discussions of when this is planned to be fixed.
Trust me, I understand the ongoing frustration with early adoption of Java 9. We have been trying to be proactive about this with the Hibernate projects as well. But as far as we understand, Java 9 is finally coming close to freeze and it would be nice to get any additional feedback we might have to the EG ASAP.
We currently see problems with the 155 build. Our last successful CI build using Gradle and Java 9 used the 143 build, if that helps.
Can someone from the Gradle team please comment on the plans to support Java 9? ATM projects like Hibernate are struck in the water in providing early Java 9 feedback because Gradle is holding us back. We’d just like to understand what expectations we should have.
And no, 3.4-rc-3 does not fix the problem
