I tried running SQL*Developer with Java 11 OpenJDK. To make things abundantly clear, that is not Oracle implementation. SQL*Develper kept returning to the prompt and refused to work with Java 11. I have 2 questions:

1. Are there any plans to certify SQL*Developer on OpenJDK-11
2. Does SQL*Developer work with Oracle JDK-11

Here is the list of available JDK's:

mgogala@umajor:/usr/lib/jvm$ ls
java-1.11.0-openjdk-amd64  java-1.8.0-openjdk-amd64
java-11-openjdk-amd64       java-8-openjdk-amd64

None of these works. I am forced to use Oracle JDK implementation, which resides in /usr/java/jdk_latest.
