General Information – Please Note

You may have noticed that AdoptOpenJDK is not maintained any more. This is because the latest build of the OpenJDK project has been moved into the Eclipse Foundation. This in turn required it to be rebranded to Adoptium. For Debian based deployments, using AdoptOpenJDK, up-to-date patch levels for Java 8 are no longer available. Using outdated versions of Java 8 could introduce issues with OX App Suite v7.10.6. The good news is that Eclipse Temurin, from the Adoptium Working Group, provides the latest Java 8 patches.

Note that Open-Xchange’s Debian packages depended on the AdoptOpenJDK packages - namely “adoptopenjdk-8-hotspot-jre”. To make the switch to Adoptium easier, the package dependency has now been changed to the virtual Java 8 package of Debian: “java8-runtime-headless”. The Debian Package Manager can now simply select the required package, that is bundled in the virtual Java 8 package. Note that to be on a supported environment, you need one from Adoptium.

Instructions for adding the package repositories for Eclipse Temurin (from the Adoptium Working Group) can be found here: https://adoptium.net/de/installation/linux/. You need to install the “temurin-8-jdk” package from that repository. Furthermore make sure that no other packages are installed that provide the virtual “java8-runtime-headless” package, or at least switch to Eclipse Temurin using the “update-alternatives –config java” command line tool. If you do not do this then you may not be running OX App Suite on latest Java 8 patch level.
