I'm working for an Insurance Group, currently responsible of the implementation of Guidewire Insurance suite (https://www.guidewire.com/products/insurancesuite), which is a World Class application developed in Java.
We'd implemented the Guidewire suite for one of our Companies, using IBM WebSphere Network Deployment, and we took advantage of some of their features like Cells, Intelligent Management and Dynamic Clusters.
The version we're running (10.0.1) is compatible with Java 8, but the new one (10.0.2) will work only with Java 11.
This means that, if Java 11 keeps supported only in WAS Liberty and not on WebSphere Network Deployment, we need to stay stuck on the current version (not a valid option from the business perspective) or change the application server, starting from scratch, and rebuild everything we did so far.
WebSphere Network Deployment solves a large part of the implementation, balance and high availability strategy in our company, and we need it to include official support for Java 11, in order to update our insurance core.
