Yes. Currently, it will be added to jdk.charsets for non-AIX platforms.
Only two charsets which has to be in java.base on AIX platform is
currently missing [Vi_VN.IBM-1129 & ja_JP.IBM-eucJP]. We are trying to add
those two charsets so that openjdk can start on all locales for
Once we decided the approach for IBM charsets on jdk.charsets in the other
discussion thread, we can move all the IBM charsets (including these two
new ones) to the new location. Hope that is acceptable. Please advise.

and to be clear, I think what you are doing here is adding IBM-1129 to
java.base on AIX builds and adding it to jdk.charsets on other
platforms. There isn't any build infrastructure at this time to do
otherwise and maybe that is something that will come out of the other
