$ rm -rf target && atlas-package 

[INFO] Project POM found

Executing: 
/Applications/Atlassian/atlassian-plugin-sdk-8.2.6/apache-maven-3.5.4/bin/mvn
 package -gs 
/Applications/Atlassian/atlassian-plugin-sdk-8.2.6/apache-maven-3.5.4/conf/settings.xml

Continue using JDK 8 to compile. The resulting app should work in JDK 11 without issue
