Hi [~mukul_gandhi]

thank you very much for your answer.

If it is really the case that you have to support JDK 1.4, then it is clear 
that you cannot remove that interface.
 On the other hand you will never be able to support modules on JDK 9 or higher 
this way, because you produce a split package with the JDK itself. 

So I recommend to create two different versions, or maybe a multi-release jar 
version (see JEP238).

>          Issue Type: Wish
>          Components: DOM (HTML)
>    Affects Versions: 2.11.0
>            Reporter: Otmar Humbel
>            Priority: Critical
>             Fix For: 2.12.0
> The interface {{org.w3c.dom.html.HTMLDOMImplementation}} is part of the JDK 
> since Java {{1.7}}.
> Java 1.7 has been EOL 'ed since a long time.
>  Is there any reason to keep this interface in {{xercesImpl.jar}}? It 
> produces a split package:
> {{xerces-2_11_0: jdeps --jdk-internals -cp ./xercesImpl.jar}}
>  {{split package: org.w3c.dom.html [jrt:/jdk.xml.dom, ./xercesImpl.jar]}}
> which prevents people from using modules in Java {{>= 9}}.
