After OpenJDK released update version 11.0.9 on 20th of October, SapMachine engineers have discovered a regression that could cause crashes under certain circumstances. It turned out that a fix that already existed in higher releases was missing (JDK-8250861).
We initiated a re-spin of the OpenJDK October update that goes by version number 188.8.131.52.
A corresponding SapMachine 184.108.40.206 has been released as well, containing further fixes:
- JDK-8255603: Memory/Performance regression after JDK-8210985
- SapMachine #756: Fix SapMachine Icon on MacOSX
- SapMachine #746: Vitals: show global number of processes and tasks
This could be relevant for several SAP products such as SAP Hybris etc. or if you’re running Java Workloads on SAP Cloud Platform.
The OpenJDK project is the reference implementation of the Java language and its JVM. All major downstream distributions, e.g. Oracle JDK, Amazon Corretto, Azul Zulu, BellSoft OpenJDK and AdoptOpenJDK derive from this project. SAP is engaging heavily in this project and is amongst the top 3 contributors.
