It seems to me that Oracle is doing their best to kill Java.  One uses 
Java 16 for "security" reasons and one uses Java 8 if one actually wants 
the shit to work. (And Java 11 if you don't know which way to go, so 
then you have neither).

I tried to light up my RenderFarm after, oh, 2 years off (already!).

I took me awhile to get it this far (just starting up without crashing) 
because my basic java beans followed best practices from 5-10 years ago 
and now that is verboten. And the best part was google didn't have 
solutions to fix the brokenness, but it did have advice on how to get 
Java to ignore the evil non-errors.

And so I'm stuck at my JDBC database connection doesn't work because it 
needs SSL.  Ugh.  certs suck. I don't wanna add them to this flow. 
Besides, since this is all one box, the private key and public key are 
visible to both sides of the transaction, as well as anyone who breaks 
into my computer. Encrypting the database on a localhost->localhost 
connection helps nothing!

argh.
