The Release Engineering build platform for Solaris is Solaris 11u1.
Traditionally that means that code built with that platform is only
supported on the official build platform and newer.
This is why we hung onto Solaris 10u6 so long as the official build
platform for JDK8...
I would say that Solaris 10 is not a supported platform in JDK9, but
I'm not an official voice at all... :-)
