IBM implementation uses the left to right order ! I've just tested with the latest Java 8 available.
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 220.127.116.11 - pxa6480sr5fp7-20171216_01(SR5 FP7)) IBM J9 VM (build 2.9, JRE 1.8.0 Linux amd64-64 Compressed References 20171215_373586 (JIT enabled, AOT enabled) OpenJ9 - 5aa401f OMR - 101e793 IBM - b4a79bf) so it's an implementation bug, #2 seems to be the right solution.
