For a while now, Oracle engineers have been able to configure builds of
JDK 9 with binary dependencies automatically downloaded from an artifact
storage, using Jib. Since then, Jib has been enhanced to also support
publishing build artifacts produced by the build into the same storage.
Such artifacts can subsequently be used as dependencies for other build
With this change, the Jib profiles configuration in JDK 9 are updated to
leverage this new functionality in Jib. By doing this, we are able to
express and define all deliverables from the build in the source code.
We are also able to define possible workflows where one build step
requires input from another.
This change attempts to describe all artifacts currently built and
stored by RE, with a few known exceptions that will be adjusted in
With this change, there is a fair bit of refactoring in the
jib-profiles.js file(s). The old designe resulted in a fair bit of
duplicated configure arguments and it was hard to control what settings
got duplicated in variants of profiles, such as *-debug. I believe the
new patterns are more flexible without sacrificing readability. I have
manually inspected the generated configure lines for all relevant
profiles and compared before and after the change to make sure no
regressions are introduced by this.
I moved more of the default version numbers into the version-numbers
file so that they can be read from jib-profiles.js.
In langtools/test/Makefile, I made it possible to override the
TEST_OUTPUT_DIR, like it is currently possible for the other test
