[Bug 1368094] [NEW] Please backport openjdk-8 8u40~b04-2 (universe) from utopic

Jim Jones
Public bug reported:

Please backport openjdk-8 8u40~b04-2 (universe) from utopic to trusty.

Reason for the backport:
========================
To support developing for JDK 8 and running Java applications requiring JRE 8.

Testing:
========
Mark off items in the checklist [X] as you test them, but please leave the checklist so that backporters can quickly evaluate the state of testing.

You can test-build the backport in your PPA with backportpackage:
$ backportpackage -u ppa:<lp username>/<ppa name> -s utopic -d trusty openjdk-8

* trusty:
[ ] Package builds without modification (seems to be missing dependencies)
[ ] openjdk-8-doc installs cleanly and runs
[ ] openjdk-8-jdk installs cleanly and runs
[ ] openjdk-8-jre-headless installs cleanly and runs
[ ] openjdk-8-jre-zero installs cleanly and runs
[ ] openjdk-8-jre installs cleanly and runs
[ ] openjdk-8-source installs cleanly and runs
[ ] openjdk-8-dbg installs cleanly and runs
[ ] openjdk-8-demo installs cleanly and runs
[ ] openjdk-8-jre-jamvm installs cleanly and runs

No reverse dependencies

** Affects: trusty-backports

hi doko, do you think backporting openjdk-8 is reasonable? Note
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=761273 which was
inspired by this.

Anyone could file a bug to update the package, without rdepends the
process is pain free. Maybe Marius would like to volunteer to keep an
eye on openjdk-8 updates in U. The backports team still has a desire to
implement some reporting for out of date packages, but nobody has taken
this work on yet.

In my PPA (https://launchpad.net/~saiarcot895/+archive/ubuntu/myppa), I
have openjdk-8 version 8u20~b26-0ubuntu1. I can confirm that, from this
slightly-modified version, the packages openjdk-8-jre, openjdk-8-jdk,
openjdk-8-jre-headless, and openjdk-8-source install and work for normal
usage. My package also sets Java 8 to be the default Java version.

Also, for the build-dependency, debian/rules seems to insert g++-4.8
into debian/control when it's on Trusty, so if the generation of the
debian/control file happens on Trusty, no manual changes should be
needed.

+1 Backporting openJDK 8 would be nice; as Oracle JDK 7 End Of Life is
next month, users of Oracle JDK will migrate to 8, while users of
openJDK will not be able to cope up with them , unless the backporting
happens before that.

I've currently got backports from Vivid to Trusty of:

 openjdk-8  8u45-b14-1
 openjfx 8u40-b25-1

 in a PPA for testing.

https://launchpad.net/~tj/+archive/ubuntu/java-for-14.04/

I'm going to be doing thorough testing of them via several demanding
Java projects over the coming week or so.

In order to successfully build openjfx several other packages, required
only for building, had to be backported too (libasm4-java, spock,
werken.xpath [bug #1455275 in library symlink).

All of the backports needed tweaks to either their build-depends or
their debian/rules to force explicit use of the Java-8 JRE/JDK.

I'd like some feedback on whether those build-depends backports would be
accepted into Trusty in order to enable the backport of OpenJFX, which
has become a core part of Java-8 providing long-demanded media handling
support.

Having Java-8 in the repository without OpenJFX for the LTS would, I
foresee, invite demands and bug reports for missing major functionality.

Package           Section        Changes
libasm4-java     java            Support for ASM5
spock            universe/misc   Required by gradle; needed to build against Java-8
werken.xpath     universe/misc   Required by gradle; bug-fix of bad symlink /usr/share/java/werken.xpath-java

The problem is that these packages need to build against Java-8 in order
to be useful but that might cause regressions in the building of other
packages that build-depend on them but are targeted at Trusty's Java-6
or Java-7. I intend to work through their reverse-depends lists to
determine if there are any problems but that will take some time.

Wouldn't a backport for OpenJFX (and other packages that need to be
backported) require a separate backport request?
