Yes , I was able to start up tomcat 9.0.4 with the corresponding java.
One thing that was annoying was that $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security dorectory
has changes to $JAVA_HOME/lib/security.

Not a big deal but if you are using certs it is.

Now, the applications is used did not like java 9 , so I pulled back to
java 8_161.

But that's been my brief experiences with TCAT 9 and Java 9

Subject: Running Tomcat 9 using OpenJDK 10

Has anyone tried running Tomcat 9 using OpenJDK 9 or 10?  I know the
OpenJDK releases don't have all the modules  (like JavaFX) that the Oracle
JDK does and I was wondering if the libraries that Tomcat needs are part
of the standard OpenJDK distribution?
