Re: GWT compilation issue with jdk 17

Yes , we are using  jakartaee-api : 9.0.0 . So can you please suggest which version of gwtp-dispatch-rest-*.jar will be compatible with Jakarta 9.0 ?

Two things:

  • using JDK 17 doesn't mean you have to use Jakarta EE 9+, Java EE 8 / Jakarta EE 8 should still work just fine. You may have also changed your server to a Jakarta EE 9+ version, but that's (almost) independent from using JDK 17
  • GWTP is long dead; at least one year before the Javax/Jakarta mess was even announced (except for one never-released commit in Sept. 2018)
Legacy projects should stay on "legacy" Java EE (or Jakarta EE 8), or migrate away from legacy/abandoned libs and frameworks that lock them to Java EE.

Just FYI , I've already tried with  gwtp-dispatch-rest-1.6.jar and facing the same issue  " The import cannot be resolved" .
As , we are aware in jdk17 we are using Jakarta API means  HttPheaders is now moved to . 
So , wanted to know if there is any gwtp-dispatch-rest jar with JDK 17.

Hi , 

I am trying to compile GWT with JDK17.
As per , I came to know that GWT2.10.0 is compatible with JDK17 and hence I updated the same in my project .

Now, facing issue with gwtp-dispatch-rest-1.4.jar like : 
[ERROR] Line 24: The import cannot be resolved
[ERROR] Line 95: HttpHeaders cannot be resolved to a variable

Can someone please help and let me know which version of gwtp-dispatch-rest-*.jar is compatible with JDK 17 .

Thanks in advance .
