      Description

      As a follow-up to JDK-8028563 from JDK 10 which removed support for the 1.6/6 source and target option, in JDK 11 support for the 1.7/7 source and target option should be removed. As part of this work, the 1.8/8 option should be deprecated.

      This is a continuation of the policy described in JEP 182: Policy for Retiring javac -source and -target Options (JDK-8046172).
