Many thanks with the link about the Platforms supported:
This appears to be a list of the platforms that are supported (certified) by
Oracle.  Where can I find the list of platforms that are supported by
OpenJDK? For example, what about the following platforms that don't appear
on the Oracle list:

Windows x86
Linux x86
aarch32 (ARMv7 32-bit)
aarch64 (ARMv8 64-bit)

Are all these supported for OpenJDK 9, 10 and 11?

There is actually no such thing as a "supported OpenJDK platform". While I hope things may change in the future, OpenJDK as an organization does not publicize any list of "supported" platforms. Oracle publishes a list of platforms they support, and I presume that Red Hat and SAP and others do the same, but the OpenJDK project itself does not.

With that said, platforms which were previously supported by Oracle (like the one's you mentioned) tend to still work more-or-less well, but they receive no or little testing, and is prone to bit rot.


Thanks for this.  I think I should clarify what I mean by a supported
platform.  This would be a platform for which bugs affecting the ability
to build a working OpenJDK binary for that platform would be considered
valid by the OpenJDK community and a user-submitted patch to fix such a
bug would be considered for integration into the OpenJDK codebase.
