Bug Description

It appears 4.21-1 version of this package was compiled with Java 11. If check the classes in this package with `file` I see version 55.0 (Java SE 11). This causes errors such as:
with root cause java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: org/eclipse/jdt/internal/compiler/Compiler has been compiled by a more recent version of the Java Runtime (class file version 55.0), this version of the Java Runtime only recognizes class file versions up to 52.0

For compatibility reasons it should be compiled using Java 8. Otherwise many apps will fail to function eg. with Tomcat.

It appears 4.21 might be requiring Java SE 11. Maybe the latest version which is compatible with Java 8 is 4.20.
