CDS runtime classpath checking is too strict when only classes from the system modules are archived


    • Subcomponent:
    • Resolved In Build:



        For ease of use, the CDS archive contains only boot classes from the system modules, we ignore the classpath specified in the dump time command-line:

        $ mkdir -p foo
        $ touch foo/bar

        $ rm -f tmp.jsa
        $ echo java/lang/Object > classlist
        $ java -Xshare:dump -XX:SharedClassListFile=classlist -XX:SharedArchiveFile=tmp.jsa -cp foo
        $ java -Xshare:on -XX:SharedArchiveFile=tmp.jsa -version
        java -Xshare:on -XX:SharedArchiveFile=tmp.jsa -Xlog:class+path=debug -version
        [0.003s][info][class,path] bootstrap loader class path=/jdk/bld/dre/images/jdk/lib/modules
        [0.003s][info][class,path] opened: /jdk/bld/dre/images/jdk/lib/modules

        [0.012s][info][class,path] ok
        [0.027s][info][class,path] checking shared classpath entry: /jdk/bld/dre/images/jdk/lib/modules
        [0.027s][info][class,path] ok
        java version "12-internal" 2019-03-19

        ^----- note that "foo" has been excluded from the dump time classpath.

        However, the above will fail if the CDS archive contains only classes from the system modules, but some of these classes were loaded by the platform or app class loaders (CLDRLocaleDataMetaInfo is loaded by the platform loader):

        $ rm -f tmp.jsa
        $ echo sun/util/resources/cldr/provider/CLDRLocaleDataMetaInfo > classlist
        $ java -Xshare:dump -XX:SharedClassListFile=classlist -XX:SharedArchiveFile=tmp.jsa -cp foo

        Hint: enable -Xlog:class+path=info to diagnose the failure

        The bug is present in the JDK 12 early access build 5 (2018/8/2)
