|Re: [justj-dev] JustJ for Java 16|
So far I've only produce a milestone for Java 16:
I have not tested it with the installer nor have I tested
creating any installations with it yet. I seem to recall hearing
that some of the 2021-03 EPP packages didn't work with Java 16
because of some removals, so that made me concerned about making
it available as a choice in the installer because choosing that
and the most recent release might not work. And of course all the
existing mechanisms around BREEs and such assume that only a lower
bound needs to be specified so nowhere is there information that
would specify "don't use Java 16 for Eclipse version 4.19 and
lower or for EPP Packages 2021-03 or lower"...
As for releases in the PMI, in the end JustJ is kind of more like
Orbit. The JustJ project's infrastructure generates everything
from the URLs of the JDKs, so it not actually maintaining JREs.
I'm not sure it makes so sense to produce a release record for
each time a new 15.0.2, 16.0.1, 16.0.2, 17.0.0, and so on JDK
If you think the packages should work with Java 16 with the
upcoming milestone, I can test to see if that seems to work...
On my EPP release checklist is updating Java version from JustJ. At the moment we have Java 15 packaged with EPP. I can see that there is a download of Java 16 on the download site
Has this been "released" - i.e. should EPP now be consuming that instead of Java 15? The PMI does not have an entry for Java 16 yet, so I assume it is not ready until I hear otherwise.
