    <div class="moz-cite-prefix">Unless you have specific reasons for
      using jdk7, I recommend using the latest released version of javac
      in the jdk8 repositories.<br>
      <br>
      If you are new to OpenJDK, I would recommend getting the full
      source code for OpenJDK and building that, which includes building
      javac. The build system in JDK 8 is much improved over that in JDK
      7 and makes building the full product much easier.   You can find
      build instructions by searching for "build OpenJDK 8".<br>
