Build failures with java 11
when trying to build davx5 with java 11 (openjdk 11.0.3), I get the following failure:
$ ./gradlew assemble > Configure project :cert4android WARNING: API 'variant.getPackageLibrary()' is obsolete and has been replaced with 'variant.getPackageLibraryProvider()'. It will be removed at the end of 2019. For more information, see https://d.android.com/r/tools/task-configuration-avoidance.

I read that with project jigsaw, some modules were deprecated and (re)moved from Java. Any recommendations how to fix this build problem with Java 11?
Does it work with Java 8? I don’t know whether Java 11 is even supported by the Android tools and had various problems, so I’m using this right now:
$ java -version openjdk version "1.8.0_212" OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_212-b01) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.212-b01, mixed mode)
It does build with Java 8. The problem only happens with Java 9 or later.
As far as I know, this is a general Android question and not DAVx5-specific. Currently, Android tools don’t work with Java 11.
