Re: GWT 2.8.2 release

Hmm - from that description it sounds like the bug might be in the gradle plugin then, we did test compiling java8 .java files with a java9 jre. Can you confirm that is what you are trying to do, and have you tried testing building without gradle?

Today we released the next version of GWT, version 2.8.2. A few quick highlights from this new release:
  • GWT can now run on Java 9 (though Java 9 features are not yet supported, coming soon!)

Currently, using the gradle plugin from, I get an error about not finding java.lang.Object
Same build runs fine if I change the JVM to Java 8.
