8273797: Stop impersonating "server" VM in all VM variants #5526



Copy link

@shipilev shipilev commented Sep 15, 2021

As the follow-up for Zero-specific JDK-8273494, we might want to clean up build system logic for all VM variants: stop impersonating "server" VMs for all of them. This basically leaves "core" and "custom" variants to be handled with this patch.

Additional testing:

  • Linux x86_64 core build passes, now in core, jvm.cfg mentions -core KNOWN
  • Linux x86_64 custom (+serialgc,+compiler2) build passes, now in custom, jvm.cfg mentions -custom KNOWN


  • Change must not contain extraneous whitespace
  • Commit message must refer to an issue
  • Change must be properly reviewed


  • JDK-8273797: Stop impersonating "server" VM in all VM variants

From a purely "mechanical" perspective this is a good simplification and cleanup.

Did you test building all variants into one image?

Did you test building all variants into one image?

Yes, I did, but I think the build system is confused about the VM feature sets. I have a vague recollection that ether @magicus or someone else at one point suggested eliminating multi-variant builds, maybe that should be the next step in build simplification.

@magicus, want to take a look as well?

Looks good. Thanks for waiting for my input; sorry for the delay.

As for eliminating multi-JVM builds: yes, that is on my agenda, but as long as I'm still just working part-time it's hard to make any headway in that direction. The next step is to create a --with-import-jvms=<name:path>,[<name:path>,...], so that it is possible to simulate a multi-JVM build by e.g.

bash configure --with-jvm-variant=zero --with-conf-name=zero-hotspot
make hotspot
bash configure --with-jvm-variant=server --with-conf-name=combined --with-import-jvms=zero:./build/$PLATFORM/jdk/lib/zero

or something like that.

When that exists and is working, and all downstream users has had time to adapt, then we can remove multi-JVM build support (and boy am I longing for that day).

If you want to help by implementing the --with-import-jvms options, you are more than welcome!
