Keep an eye on the Github Actions server for JBehave builds.
At compile-time, JDK 11 is required to build JBehave modules
At runtime, end users can use JDK 8 or above in their own projects that use JBehave for testing.
Maven version required to build: 3.6 or above (while tested with 3.6.x it may also work with previous 3.x versions)

Maven Build Profiles
- default: builds all releasable modules
- examples: builds all headless examples
- gui: builds examples that require a GUI (i.e. non-headless) mode (separated as they do not run on CI.
- nt: no-test, builds skipping unit-test behaviors
Maven Build Profiles used during release cycle
- reporting: builds reports
- distribution: builds distribution (documentation)
Note: profiles are additive and the default profile is always active.
