Sorry, but I must be missing something.
When you compile a class (not an MXBean as Daniel pointed out, but a
data object class) with JDK9, it can't be used on JDK8 because of class
When you compile a class with JDK8, it can't contain new @CS annotation,
because it is not part of the official Java SE API on the Java 8 platform.
So I still don't see how one could compile a data class so that it could
be used on JDK8 as well as on JDK9 without java.desktop module?
