Hy Ed,

first off, thanks a lot for your efforts on this! This has (is) a long running topic on our site, and we did not yet manage to transition away from Java 8.

I just gave your builds for JRE 11 a spin for our product (I tried both minimal and full) and on startup I fail with

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/activation/DataSource
and
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: javax.xml.bind.JAXBException cannot be found

I know from our tries to transition away, that these are required for external inclusion. Am I getting things wrong here, that these libraries are to be included in full?

Thanks,
Marco

Note that from this page you can view what is present in each bundle:

https://download.eclipse.org/justj/jres/11/updates/release/11.0.2/index.html

E.g., in JustJ OpenJDK Hotspot JRE Complete 11.0.2 -> Properties -> org.osgi.framework.system.packages

Both javax.activation and javax.xml.bind are not present.

A bit of Googling suggests they are removed in Java 11:

https://www.dariawan.com/tutorials/java/using-jaxb-java-11/

Using these instructions:

https://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse_Oomph_Authoring#How_to_find_a_P2_repository_at_Eclipse_using_the_Repository_Explorer

You can bundle bundles that export such packages. You should make sure those are installed. I think you also need to explicitly use a package import (or bundle requirement) in the MANIFEST.MF so that this dependency is properly wired.

My guess is that this older version of Eclipse doesn't works with this newer version of Java. Try Java 8 or try a newer version of Eclipse. The version of Eclipse released in the next few hours will require Java 11....

Thanks for your feedback!

Is it correct, that JustJ JRE complete should be functionally equal to the adoptopenjdk jre download?

As documented on the main page:

https://www.eclipse.org/justj/

The sources of these Java runtimes are any and all versions approved by the Eclipse Foundation for such purposes. Currently that is limited to the latest release available via https://jdk.java.net.

In principle it should be functionally equivalent. But adoptopenjdk provides more builds, e.g., they have Java 11.0.8 while jdk.java.net only has 11.0.2.

If this ever makes progress:

https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/adoptium

We'll have additional approved sources....
