*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 1696456 ***

Public bug reported:

I've installed the HDFView program to view HDF5 files. The program
starts and allows me to open a file, but does not show anything about
the contents and structure of the file. As test files, I used samples
from the HDF Group:


When I launch hdfview from the terminal, the program starts but produces an 
warning which may be related to the problem:
[warning] /usr/bin/hdfview: No java runtime was found
When choosing Help / Java version inside the program, it reports: 
Compiled at jdk 1.7, Running at 9-Ubuntu

I have installed the openjdk-8-jre package and java --version reports:
openjdk 9-Ubuntu
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 9-Ubuntu+0-9b181-4)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 9-Ubuntu+0-9b181-4, mixed mode)

Ubuntu release: 17.10
Package version: apt-cache policy hdfview
  Installed: 2.11.0+dfsg-2build1
  Candidate: 2.11.0+dfsg-2build1
  Version table:
 *** 2.11.0+dfsg-2build1 500

        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

The same problem is described in this Askubuntu discussion thread:

I am using the same workaround, HDFView-3.0.0. downloaded directly from
HDF Group site. That works, and HDFCompass (from Ubuntu package hdf-
compass) works too.
