Please review this change which implements part of JEP 381:

JBS: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8244224
webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~mikael/webrevs/8244224/webrev.00/security/open/webrev/
JEP: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8241787

Note: When reviewing this, please be aware that this exercise was *extremely* mind-numbing, so I appreciate your help reviewing all the individual changes carefully. You may want to get that coffee cup filled up (or whatever keeps you awake)!


Because of the size of the total patch and wide range of areas touched, this patch is one out of in total six partial patches which together make up the necessary changes to remove the Solaris and SPARC ports. The other patches are being sent out for review to mailing lists appropriate for the respective areas the touch. An email will be sent to jdk-dev summarizing all the patches/reviews. To be clear: this patch is *not* in itself complete and stand-alone - all of the (six) patches are needed to form a complete patch. Some changes in this patch may look wrong or incomplete unless also looking at the corresponding changes in other areas.

For convenience, I’m including a link below[1] to the full webrev, but in case you have comments on changes in other areas, outside of the files included in this thread, please provide those comments directly in the thread on the appropriate mailing list for that area if possible.

In case it helps, the changes were effectively produced by searching for and updating any code mentioning “solaris", “sparc”, “solstudio”, “sunos”, etc. More information about the areas impacted can be found in the JEP itself.


A slightly earlier version of this change successfully passed tier1-8, as well as client tier1-2. Additional testing will be done after the first round of reviews has been completed.
