Building OpenJDK 13 and OpenJDK 14 on Solaris 11

Building OpenJDK 13 and OpenJDK 14 on Solaris 11


Java was created by Sun Microsystems and delivered a platform to build compatible platform & set of services which applications could be built upon, regardless of CPU Architecture or Vendor Operating System. This promise exists today.

Building OpenJDK

Java was Open Sourced by Oracle. In a previous article, it was discussed how JDK 8 is used to build both OpenJDK 11 & OpenJDK 12. Further efforts have been exercised, some half year later, to build OpenJDK 13 and OpenJDK 14 on modern operating systems like Oracle 11.


Java continues to demonstrate it's relevance as an platform to maintain existing Managed Services and Enterprise based applications. As long as Java continues to offer a multi-platform and multi-operating system based, it will have a long life!
