     101        Java 8 is still the only officially supported version, but our intention
     102        is to switch to Java 11 (or later) some time in the near future (2019).
     103        We have made some initial tests with Java 11 and believe that BASE should
     104        work. However, it requires an extra installation step:

     106      <para>
     107        Copy the JAR-files located in <filename>&lt;base-dir&gt;/misc/java11/</filename>
     108        to the <filename>&lt;base-dir&gt;/www/WEB-INF/lib/</filename> directory.
     109        If you are running a BASE server today it might be a good idea to
     110        be prepared by setting up a test environment that is running a clone of
     111        the main server under Java 11.

    289             As of BASE 3.6 only Java SE 8 is supported. Java SE 7
    290             or lower is not supported. Java 11 is not yet officially
    291             supported. It may work, but it requires an extra installation
    292             step: Copy the JAR-files located in <filename>&lt;base-dir&gt;/misc/java11/</filename>
    293             to the <filename>&lt;base-dir&gt;/www/WEB-INF/lib/</filename> directory.

     304            <para>
     305            Java SE 8 is the officially supported version since BASE 3.6.
     306            We have made some initial tests with Java 11 and we believe it to
     307            be working. The plan is to switch to Java 11 (or later)
     308            some time in the near future (2019). If you are setting up a new
     309            BASE installation, you might as well try that with Java 11
     310            already now. It requires an extra installation step:
     311            </para>
     312            <para>
     313            Copy the JAR-files located in <filename>&lt;base-dir&gt;/misc/java11/</filename>
     314            to the <filename>&lt;base-dir&gt;/www/WEB-INF/lib/</filename> directory.
