javax.tools.ToolProvider's dependence on tools.jar that no longer exists in modular JDK

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • CPU:
      generic, x86
    • OS:
      generic, linux

      Description

      In a modular JDK, tools.jar no longer exists. Instead it is replaced with modules installed in the system module library.

      javax.tools.ToolProvider.getSystemJavaCompiler() returns null if tools.jar doesn't exist.

      javax.tools.ToolProvider shall be updated to work properly in a modular JDK.
