Subject: [fedora-java] Mass-bug filing for removed OpenJDK 9 internal APIs
I plan to file bugs against packages which contain hard (i.e. not
reflection-based) references to internal OpenJDK classes and methods
which have been removed from OpenJDK 9. The total number of affected
packages is around 40. The bug reports will mention the recommended
replacements in the public API.
This does not affect features like the support for pointer arithmetic
and arbitrary memory access, at least not until they are removed upstream.
It seems resonable to report these bugs to upstream projects too. OpenJDK 9 is just too
early in development to take it seriously from Fedora POV now.
I don't mind having tracking bug @fedora but if it's not sent upstream it will
stay that way at least until Fedora starts to ship OpenJDK 9 JVM.
