Availability of OpenJDK build for JET 15.3

Recommended Posts

We are planning to update to JET 15.3 with OpenJDK. The profile is 1.8.0_181. We want to use the corresponding JDK build for daily development. It seems that Oralce removed their OpenJDK build for that version from jdk.java.net. AdoptOpenJDK has jdk8u181-b13 archived, but it does not include JavaFx.  So, 

Which OpenJDK build with JavaFx is JET 15.3 based on? Did JET build it directly from source based on a release tag?

Going forward, we want to be sure that the OpenJDK for development and JET for production have the same patch set. Will JET plan to be based on some public OpenJDK release build such as AdoptOpenJDK or Amazon Corretto?

Yes, it is based on release tag and currently it is 1.8.0_181 (Java8u181).

>> Will JET plan to be based on some public OpenJDK release build such as AdoptOpenJDK or Amazon Corretto?

We  have minor patches of OpenJDK that are mainly bug fixes. We plan to publish our own builds of OpenJDK that contain our patches.

>>but it does not include JavaFx.

You may use ZuluFX build for development. Now it is based on Java 8u202 but we do not think that it can cause problems.
