 From what I can tell, none of the apache-spark benchmarks will run with 
with any recent feature releases. They all fall over with HADOOP-14586 
in code that is parsing the value of "java.version" property. The 
database benches seems to have issues too, seems to be code in one of 
Chronicle libraries trying to hack java.lang.reflect.AccessibleObject 
privates. Are you, or others, working with these projects to get fixes 
or versions that run on more recent releases, maybe as part of the 
effort to get it to run on JDK 11 builds?

I'm only asking because most of the activity in OpenJDK is the main 
line, currently targeting JDK 13, and in the project repos that are 
developing features that will eventually go into the main line. It would 
be nice to be able to have the benchmark suite usable on the latest code 
base. It is of course useful to be able to run it on update releases too 
but I'm less interested in that.
