    WildFly 11 and OpenJDK 9

    Dhananjay Ghole Newbie

      Is WildFly 11 supported on OpenJDK 9 (JDK 9 GA Release)?

       

      Thanks!

          JDK9 is a complex topic as JDK itself is a big deviation from what previous JDKs especially around whole modularity (Jigsaw)

           

          We do lots of work to improve how WildFly works on JDK9 & upcoming 10.

          As server itself is combined from numerus open source projects which all move at different speeds and as such in cases like JDK9 not all projects got up to speed in time for inclusion into WildFly 11.

           

          Most of server works, but there are few small things you should be aware especially if you use JPA as you should manually replace javaassit jar in server distribution.

          There are some details about this at our mailing list archives WildFly Development - WildFly 11 and JDK9

           

          So in short, WildFly 11 does mostly work on JDK9 but there might be few more glitches here and there as more people try to use it.

           

          Best thing you could do is give it a try and if you run in any issues, let us know.

            Thanks for your response!

             

            Any difference in terms of running on Oracle Java SE 9 compared to OpenJDK 9?

             

            Best Regards!

              not really, Oracle's JDK build comes with few extra tools like Java Mission Control / Fligh recorder.

               

              but when it comes to jvm itself it is the same.
