Deprecate the Solaris/SPARC, Solaris/x64, and Linux/SPARC ports, with the intent to remove them in a future release.
Enhance the build system to issue an error message when an attempt is made to configure a build for one of the deprecated ports. The error message will be suppressible via a new configuration option.
Mark the ports, and related port-specific features, as deprecated for removal in the relevant JDK documentation.
It is not a goal of this JEP to change the status of the affected ports in any prior release. The earliest release to which this JEP could be targeted is JDK 14.
Dropping support for these ports will enable contributors in the OpenJDK Community to accelerate the development of new features that will move the platform forward.
An attempt to configure a Solaris and/or SPARC build will produce the following output:
$ bash ./configure ... checking compilation type... native configure: error: The Solaris and SPARC ports are deprecated and may be removed in a future release. \ Use --enable-deprecated-ports=yes to suppress this error. configure exiting with result code 1 $
The new build-configuration option
suppress the error and continue:
$ bash ./configure --enable-deprecated-ports=yes ... checking compilation type... native configure: WARNING: The Solaris and SPARC ports are deprecated and may be removed in a future release. ... Build performance summary: * Cores to use: 32 * Memory limit: 96601 MB The following warnings were produced. Repeated here for convenience: WARNING: The Solaris and SPARC ports are deprecated and may be removed in a future release. $
The error/warning will be issued when configuring a build for Solaris and SPARC (including Solaris/SPARC, Solaris/x64, Linux/SPARC).
