With RT-40254 we are able to build with gradle 2.3, but 1.8 is still the default.

For JDK 9, we will need to switch to a version of gradle 2 that is compatible with JDK 9, specifically modularization. Without this we will not be able to run tests and may run into other issues as well. See the following for one bug we will need a fix for in a future version of gradle:

I filed JDK-8143332 to track making 2.9 the minimum supported version.


Pushed to sandbox-9-jake. I am leaving this bug open until pushed to 9-dev (targeted for 1-Dec).



Webrev to set 2.9 to preferred version, but leave 1.8 as minimum version: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~kcr/8090171/webrev.00/

I will "flip the switch" to make 2.9 the default for building the FX jake bits (for Jigsaw) later today for tomorrow's build. Here is the timeline that we are planning: 11/20 - switch 9-jake nightly builds to gradle 2.9 12/1 - switch 9-dev nightly builds to gradle 2.9 12/7 - switch 9 master builds to gradle 2.9 (*) 12/14 - push change to make 2.9 the minimum supported version (*) Note that this is for 9 only -- FX 8u will continue to build with gradle 1.8 (although it is buildable with gradle 2.X for developers). (*) There is a possibility (unrelated to this) that we might skip the 9-dev --> 9 master integration for the week of 12/7 which would delay the last two dates by one week
