JDK 9 Support

Postby KhamPa » Fri Jan 20, 2017 7:53 am

Hello there.

I've found that some of JDK 9 released. http://openjdk.java.net/projects/jdk9/

As u know new JDK supports AOT compilation that possibly able to improve overall performance of LeJos programs on Ev3.
Its supports only java.base right now.

JDK9 full release planned on JULY 2017.

So would LeJos support JDK9?

That document says that AOT compilation is only supported for Linux/x64 systems so is very unlikely to work on the EV3. I'm sure someone will get JDK 9 working on the EV3 but there may be issues due to the rather old version of Linux that is used by LEGO/leJOS. There are also the problems (like with Java 8) of having to take extra steps to generate the JRE on another system rather than having something that can be used directly from the download.

With EV3Dev, I am testing the installation of Java 9. At the moment, I could install Java 9, JDK + JRE installing in a manual way all debian packages, but it is possible. When I have more tests, I will inform.
