Re: [cdt-dev] Problem with latest CPP EPP and Docker terminal

Hi Jeff,

We can't really update EPP before 2022-03 (without a full respin) because I don't think it would be approved by the planning council to do a respin for this. It is possible to have a linuxtools service release with a p2.inf that adds the extra options though so Check for Updates could see it*. Alternatively ask users to downgrade to Java 11?

* Slight complication is that there is no linuxtools update site configured by default. There is a CDT one.

There is a separate conversation on whether adding those args is ok or iif fixing the code to not access JDK internals needs to be done.

Hi Jonah,

There is an issue with the latest CPP EPP running Docker containers and showing results in the terminal.  Docker uses a hijack method that utilizes reflection and this is being blocked by the default Java 17 shipped with the EPP.

I found that adding: -vmargs --add-opens java.base/ --add-opens/java.base/ fixes the problem for me.

Can we add these options to the config?  Can we do an EPP update prior to 2022-03?
