I am testing to check for any nasty surprises with up and coming JDKs. I downloaded an early access build from OpenJDK.
When I attempt to use JDK11 I get this error reported by Gradle.
$ grep distributionUrl gradle/wrapper/gradle-wrapper.properties
$ /usr/lib/jvm/openjdk-11-ea/bin/java -version
openjdk version “11-ea” 2018-09-25
OpenJDK Runtime Environment 18.9 (build 11-ea+11)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM 18.9 (build 11-ea+11, mixed mode)
$ ./gradlew --stacktrace
FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.
What went wrong:
Could not determine java version from ‘11-ea’.
Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output. Run with --scan to get full insights.

It appears the version string cannot be parsed. Am I unrealistic in attempting to use an OpenJDK Early Access build?
