We still have OpenJDK 8 in Debian but OpenJDK 11 is our primary JDK/JRE
in Debian 10 "Buster". So for now you can still use OpenJDK 8 to build
software but expect that it will be removed from Debian within the next
months. We don't support older JDKs because they don't receive security
support anymore. Ideally the software can be built with OpenJDK 11. Of
course you can build for another -release target. Java 7 is the oldest
version supported with OpenJDK 11.
