  • Error observed: Even after updating our build agents to use OpenJDK 11, SonarCloud is still producing the deprecation warning around not using Java 11 to perform the local scans. Output from our build log is showing that the END process is running on OpenJDK 11 as follows:

I verified that the machines containing the build agents that run the scanner do not have any other java version loaded on them other than OpenJDK 11. Whats going to happen next month?

Apparently, just had to wait it out to see. The error went away today (Oct 1) with our builds. At this point, I’m assuming it was just a bug in the reporting of the warning.

Hi @mkoziel2000, i can’t find any related change at SonarCloud or SonarScannerMsbuild. Don’t hesitate to update here if you experience this same issue again.

I’ve had 21 days of builds without experiencing the Java warning. I suspect something environmental with our build setup. It might have been a build agent container in our cluster that didn’t get updated with the latest build image containing java 11. I’m guessing it eventually self-corrected as part of our weekly recycle activities.
