Subject JDK names on Windows nodes & Jenkinsfile
Date Fri, 24 Mar 2017 03:55:15 GMT

It seems new JDKs were added to Windows nodes recently [1]: instead of "JDK 
1.8 (unlimited security) 64-bit Windows only", we now have 2 options: "JDK 
1.8.0_92 (unlimited security) 64-bit Windows only" and "JDK 1.8.0_121 
(unlimited security) 64-bit Windows only".

Having new JDKs is great, but changing names is not great :)

We're using Jenkinsfiles, with JDK names coded inside (we = Maven, but I 
suppose others do the same): until now, it was not fun to have a different JDK 
names for Linux and Windows nodes, but now having to follow very precise JDK 
name on Windows nodes is a new hurdle.

Is it possible:
1. to have a JDK 8 alias on Windows that won't change over time, even if 
detailed version changes (like "JDK 1.x (latest)" on Ubuntu nodes"?

2. ideally to have the same name on Windows as on Linux nodes?

And of course, if I can help to make this happen, just tell me what to do.
