OpenJDK 8 that does not rely on the system NSS version to make it compatible with old RHEL6 versions with an outdated NSS library.

For more information see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1332456

For binaries with OpenJFX included, see the instructions.

Installation Instructions


On an older RHEL6 system, the regular packages will not be available for installation. Add this repository or install the RPMs manually to obtain a working OpenJDK 1.8.

Builds with OpenJFX

A tarball with OpenJFX (WebKit enabled) can be found here: https://artifactory.luxoft.com/ojdk8rhel6-generic/

The tarball can be extracted and should work on most GNU/Linux systems. It was successfully tested on Fedora 30, RHEL 6.1 and Ubuntu 16.04.


This build includes all the OpenJFX patches that are also applied to the ojdkbuild 1.8 packages for MS Windows, source: https://github.com/jschwartzenberg/openjfx8
