This is an IBM Automation portal for Cloud Platform products. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.

Just to add additional clarification does this means that TWAS is not expected to support ANY version of Java past JDK8?
Thank you for the suggestion. The requirement does have merit, but our focus for traditional WebSphere is to maintain stability and security for existing workloads, and hence our commitment to support Java 8 till at least 2030. Implementing Java 11 would force applications to migrate in order to move to the latest runtime version. Given the Java 11 migration costs, our recommendation is to move to Liberty, which is a much more modern, efficient runtime, optimized for modern architecture and environments.
Given the unlikelihood that we would deliver this, we are declining the request rather than leaving it in an uncommitted state for an extended period of time. If you would like to discuss this decision further, please contact Graham Charters <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Hi, and thank you for submitting this request for enhancement! Due to the very large work sizing for adding this support, we currently have no plans on implementing this in the short or medium term future. However, this is a valid request, and so I will leave it open for other users to potentially view and vote on. I just want to be very clear up front that this request is unlikely to be implemented.
