VMs and JDKs
#1
Hi Janak,
 
can you tell me, how Canoo will handle future Java-versions? Do you know, if your customers will switch to Java 11 (and paying for Oracle-Support) or to OpenJDK? Do you have any experience with OpenJDK?
What about other VMs like Zulu, Graal, … , any experiences?

Thanks a lot,
 jens

Hi Jens,

Thanks for this most important question which is currently bothering all Java developers.

1. I have tested ULC with Java 11 EA from OpenJDK http://jdk.java.net/11/ and it works.

2. Java 11 does not have JWS. For this we have prototyped JWS alternative using https://github.com/threerings/getdown . This will at least download the client side jars and start the ULC client using ULC's StandAloneLauncher.

See our Jira issue : https://jira.canoo.com/browse/UBA-8924

3. As for the future of Java please have a look at : https://docs.google.com/document/d/1nFGa...pKuHo/edit

I hope this helps. Please come back if you have more questions.

Thanks

Janak

Hi Janak,

thanks for the info. I assume, you don't see any problems with other VMs?

Thanks,

Hi Jens,

I have tested some with OpenJDK. I have not tested with other VMs but the sense is that there should not be a problem.
