     43      The next BASE release, BASE 3.16, will only support Java 11 or later. BASE 3.15 is
     44      the last BASE version that supports Java 8. Our recommendation is to upgrade to
     45      Java 11 as soon as possible. Note that Oracle no longer provide a free JDK or JRE.
     46      Instead, OpenJDK has to be used, which can be downloaded from
     47      <ulink url="https://openjdk.java.net/" />

     51      If you experience any problems with BASE 3.15 and Java 8
     52      you could try removing the listed files from the <filename>www/WEB-INF/lib</filename>
     53      directory and then restart Tomcat.
