Upgrade RFT eclipse to support Java 11

We need to move our framework to java 11 to take advantage of the improvements but having RFT still on Java 8 is a hindrance.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.

    Java 17 should be good. We would need RFT eclipse to support Java 17 as well as recording and execution on Java 17.

    As we reviewed this RFE, we need additional information. Since JAVA 8 is EOL, do you need JAVA 8 or JAVA 17?
