In this fix, I have updated files in JDK libraries to use @Native
annotation instead of @GenerateNativeHeader to mark classes that
contain no native methods but constants used by native codes.
@GenerateNativeHeader was added earlier in the development for
JDK8."This has proved problematic for some core classes with respect to
Jigsaw, since the use of such an annotation creates a compile-time
dependency from the base module to the module containing javax.tools,
and the base module should not have any dependencies." After switching
to @Native annotation, the dependency problem will be solved as
java.lang.annotation.Native is in the proposed base module. In addition,
the annotation has been refined not to be on the class level but on the
constants themselves, which also makes the generated header files much
This effort is part of JDK-8000404. After jdk libraries uptaking the
annotation changes, @GenerateNativeHeader annotation will be removed
Thanks for your feedback!
