#2368 closed enhancement (fixed)

Deprecate Oracle 8 on ARM

Reported by: jogger Owned by: slumlord
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.9.38
Component: www/i2p Version: 0.9.37
Keywords: Cc:
Parent Tickets: Sensitive: no


The current deprecation warnings are outdated. They refer to a situation lang ago on ARM32 (not ARM64) when there was a choice only between the unusable OpenJDK 8 and Oracle Java 8.

Now OpenJDK 9-11 come standard with distros like Debian Stretch. Those should be recommended.

My arguments against Oracle Java 8 on ARM 32:

  • Throws SIGILL and SIGSEV every couple of days with busy i2p
  • Much slower in my testing against OpenJDK 9.0.4 (built on machine) using Scimark2 and SpeedTest1
  • Built from closed source using unknown options and linked to unknown libraries
  • Cross-compiled using outdated beta tools (try objdump)

Updated the download text for Raspberry Pi to say "OpenJDK 9 for ARM" & link to point to — changes in 1760d1080c5cb80fe4b7090f6618b5748244bbdb


FreeBSD does not yet have OpenJDK version higher than 8.
Based upon this: - FreeBSD may go directly to the next long term release of OpenJDK which is version 11
