Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6856) Make it possible to build Derby using JDK 9
Date Sat, 14 Jan 2017 17:15:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6856?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15822871#comment-15822871

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-6856:

Unfortunately, build 151 does not fix the following problem which surfaced in build 148: the
failure of our test harness to find the derbyall suite. The problem seems to be that the Java
9 class loader no longer finds resources which the Java 8 class loader can locate. The following
sample program demonstrates this problem. Compile this program with jdk 8 and put the derby
jars on your classpath. This is the output when you run the program on jdk 8...

input stream = sun.net.www.protocol.jar.JarURLConnection$JarURLInputStream@3f99bd52

...and this is the output when you run the program on jdk 9...

input stream = null

Here is the program:

public class Derby6856_MissingResource
  public static void main(String... args) throws Exception
    String resourceName = "/org/apache/derbyTesting/functionTests/suites/derbyall.properties";
    Class dummyClass = (new Object()).getClass();
    Object is = dummyClass.getResourceAsStream(resourceName);

    System.out.println("input stream = " + is);

It appears that resource resolution has changed significantly in the recent builds of JDK
9. I expect that this change will be an unwelcome surprise to many users.

> Derby can't be built with JDK 9. Java 9 introduces new JDBC classes like java.sql.ShardingKey
and methods which refer to these new classes.
> In addition, project Jigsaw has created a new way to name classes (see http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/220).
This breaks the PropertySetter build tool which we use so that old JVMs can compile Derby
and so that Derby can be compiled to run on old JVMs.
> It is likely that we will need to leave this issue open throughout the development cycle
of Java 9.
