πŸ‘Ύ Description of the issue

The following text is a sample of a a description. It is important that such descriptions contains enough information (maybe by links) to allow a newcomer to work on the issue :)

IcedTea-Web should have a Travis build. Information how a Java project can be build by Travis can be found here. IcedTea-Web is based on Maven and a mvn clean verify should be executed by the Travis build. Today we do not have a maven wrapper but that can be added when solving this issue (optional). IcedTea-Web should be build on the last Java 8 release of AdoptOpenJDK. Providing an additional build that is based on Java 11 would be a big benefit (optional).
