Why would I think that's bad? The replacement for Java 8 was just recently released, does anybody really expect the world to upgrade so quickly?

Seriously. The replacement is maybe 6 months old and breaks a lot of things— the Java code I work on doesn't work with Java 11. While we can (and at some point will) figure out why and fix it, there's other things to do in the meantime. And just migrating from Oracle JDK to OpenJDK has been enough of a pain in the ass.

I'm currently searching for a replacement JAX-WS implementation so that we can migrate to Java 11, and so far I haven't been able to find one without old-ass CVEs which were patched in core Java.
