treewide: jdk: make it point to latest version #88714

wants to merge 1 commit into from

doronbehar commented May 23, 2020

Motivation for this change

I want to encourage contributors to use (or at least try to use) the latest openjdk when they add new derivations that need Java. This change strives to make jdk point to the latest jdk, while every other derivation that uses jdk without an explicit version suffix, now uses jdk8 explicitly.

I'm still waiting for ofborg to tag this PR as "10.rebuild-linux: 0", that's why it's a draft.

I'm thinking that perhaps, it'll be better to make jdk point to the latest openjdk, but write a script that will make every derivation that has jdk in it's arguments, use jdk8 explicitly. This way, the PR will be tagged as 0: rebuild-linux and so it'll be still easy enough to merge this.

Make every other derivation, use jdk8 explicitly, so attributes won't
appear as changed by ofborg.
