I’m not a professional Java developer, so correct me if I’m wrong…
With the Java 11 release of the JDK, Oracle is moving to offer their JDK only to paid customers for non-personal use. To my knowledge, this means that teams will instead have to use a variant of OpenJDK to write their robot code if they want to use Java 11. (Since WPILib is now being written with Java 11 in mind, this may be prudent.)
Oracle is currently offering OpenJDK builds, but they claim that they will cease doing so within six months. This means that teams will have to obtain the JDK from one of the many forks.
Notably, the Oracle OpenJDK builds lack a .exe Windows installer, which is also guaranteed to confuse many teams.
My question is this: What is the recommended OpenJDK fork to use? And what will FIRST / WPILib do to make the installlation process simple for teams that need it to be simple?
