Migrate to Java 9 (to 11?)
This may still take some time. This ticket is meant as a collection of links on how to migrate best.
(I am also adding Anton to this ticket, as it might be a rather extensive task and he should now that time to tackle this is coming)

- Description updated (diff)
we should consider migrating to Java 11 directly, maybe to java 17?
Java 11 is the latest LTS release with Premier Support until September 2023.
java 17 (LTS) is about to come in September 2021 or later and will have Premier Support at least until September 2026.
Premier Support for java 8 ends in March 2022, that is next year! ==> we should set this tasks on the agenda at least for next years first quarter.
