OpenJDK 8 that does not rely on the system NSS version to make it compatible with old RHEL6 versions with an outdated NSS library.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

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.

A tarball with OpenJFX (WebKit enabled) can be found here: https://schwart6.home.xs4all.nl/rhel6/openjdk/

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

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