Jetty doesn’t support JVM 9


we have the same issue with a version of Jetty that doesn’t support JVM 9. Is it possible to get a version of Aspose.Words 18.12 without the Java 9 compiled file /versions/9/(module-info.class?

If not, can we trust that this is not an issue in version 18.11 or perhaps 19.1? We’re currently running an older version of Aspose.Total, and would prefer to upgrade Words at the same time as PDF etc.

Best regards, Petter


Thanks for your inquiry. Could you please share the complete steps that you are using to reproduce this issue at our end? Please also share the complete detail of your use case along with environment detail. We will investigate the issue and provide you more information about your query.



what we need regardless of Jetty, is a Java 8 compatible build of Aspose.Words 18.12. As far as I’m aware you can’t run a Java 9 ( javac -source 9 -target 9 Foo.java ) compiled build on Java 8?

You should in newer jvms ( 9, 10, 11… ) be able to specify : javac -source 8 -target 8 Foo.java to create a Java 8 compatible build, assuming that the code doesn’t require functionality specific for higher versions.

Is there any code in Aspose.Words 18.12 that requires Java 9 ( or higher ) version?

The official documentation still states that a jdk16 classifier should be configured in the Maven POM file, this implies that the build should be compatible with Java 6 ( and higher ), which it doesn’t seem to be?


Thanks for your inquiry. Please note that Aspose.Words does support Java 9. You can use aspose-words-19.1-jdk16.jar with Java 9.

It would be great if you please share how you create your web application. Please share the complete steps that you are using to reproduce this issue at our end. Thanks for your cooperation.
