You can switch to OpenJDK 8, which would be supported also for security updates by all the major Linux distribution. OpenJDK is production ready since years, actually Oracle's JDK is now a build of OpenJDK, with some additions.

The support for Java 9 *should* mean support for Java 11, the compatibility gap between the two is not big.
Moreover, I would (and going to) push for almost completely skipping the testing on Java 9 – it is
in end-of-life already, so providing support for it is kind of pointless. Java 11 is what should be supported by Ignite 2.8.
That said, I honestly don’t see everyone jumping from the Java 8 train any time soon.
Gap between 8 and 9+ (although not to big in reality) still makes people stay on 8,
and Oracle’s competitors are ready to offer alternative support.
So, I’d say that Java 8 is still going to be the main target for at least Ignite 2.8.
But this is all just a speculation for now as no plans were set in stone yet.

Java 11 is technically not an LTS release. Java 11 is the next LTS
release only for Oracle customers on "Premier Support".
Organizations not willing to pay for "Premier support" will need to
track OpenJDK. There is no notion of LTS in OpenJDK.
That means there is no free LTS for Java (11 and above) anymore. As soon
as Java 12 is out, all organizations tracking OpenJDK are expected to
migrate to Java 12 to get the security fixes.
In past months, some companies expressed their will to provide LTS
releases with security bugfixes and backports free of charge but as far
as I can recall, there was no definite answer yet.
That being said, companies like Red Hat and Azul systems did this for
many years for older Java SE releases (6 and 7).
I think we will learn in few months time which of Azul, Red Hat/IBM,
Amazon or Google will step up and start to provide binary LTS releases
for major OS platforms.
