Java & OpenJDK


#1

What is the strategy for Bisq concerning Java Version and JDK provider?

In the first quarter of 2019 the last public updates of the Oracle JDK will be released.

Are there plans to change to OpenJDK?

In the current setup it is not possible to compile Bisq because of the JavaFX dependencies which are not part of the OpenJDK, but available separately as OpenJFX.

I don’t know much about Java development, but you can reach out all the devs on slack.
I am sure that they will be interested in this discussion.
