Java 11

Postby Sineath » February 11th, 2020, 3:30 pm

I'm running Java 11 on both of my SuSE Linux computers. Vassal doesn't work. Will start but won't load any module. Are my days of using Vassal over?

Current version of Vassal doesn't support anything after Java 8. We've been told the upcoming version 3.3 WILL support it, however. It's just not out yet.

Well I was puzzled by similar effects when I installed it a few days ago.

The issue is litterally with a Regular Expression in the EXE Wrapper that checks for the Java Version being installed.

Java Versions patterns changed:
- old pattern : "1.[version].[patch level]"
- new pattern : "[version].[patch level]"

Workaround:
Install Java 8 as your PRIMARY JDK.
It does not prevent you from having Other JDKs / JREs on your machine installed.

Got:
- Win 10
- Oracle JDK 1.8 (latest, installer)
- Oracle released Open JDK 14 (64bit, zip file)
- Open JDK 14 (32bit, zip file)

Yes and I was able to compile it using maven (wrote a script) and run it on Java 14 (from Eclipse IDE).

I guarantee you that you will run into problems using Java 14. I know this
because I've been working on fixing them all since autumn.

I expected nothing else ;)

I just wanted to see how far I can get and at least some initial stuff seems to work with the head of the trunk ...
