can I please have a review and sponsor for this change which finally
exposes the various "vendor*" properties:


as configure arguments:


With this change, "java.vendor" and "java.vm.vendor" still default to
"Oracle Corporation" which is defined in System.c (for "java.vendor")
and in vm_version.cpp (for "java.vm.version") unless the new
"--with-vendor-name" option introduced by JDK-8193764 will be used in
the configure step.

If the "--with-vendor-name" option will be used, its value will now,
with this change, also be assigned to both, the "java.vendor" and
"java.vm.vendor" properties. I don't think that we need a separate
configure option for "java.vm.vendor" because if somebody is building
the OpenJDK with a different VM, he will own the source code of that
VM anyway and can easily set "java.vm.vendor" in his code.

For "java.vendor.url" and "java.vendor.url.bug" I've introduced the
two new configure options "--with-vendor-url" and
"--with-vendor-bug-url" which should be self explanatory. If they are
not set, the old default values will be used.

In the case of a VM crash, the HotSpot displays a second, different
bug URL which is currently only configured in the arguments.cpp file.
I've exposed this URL as well to configure with the new
"--with-vendor-vm-bug-url" configure option. Again, if this option
will not use, the VM will fall back to the old default value.

Notice that this patch also fixes a bug introduced by "8193764: Cannot
set COMPANY_NAME when configuring a build" because of which the jtreg
test "test/jdk/tools/jlink/ReleaseImplementorTest.java" fails if the
testee was configured without "--with-vendor-name". The problem is
that the code introduced by 8193764 unconditionally sets COMPANY_NAME
to the empty string, if no "--with-vendor-name" option was given. This
overrides the default setting of COMPANY_NAME=N/A from

I want to bring this into jdk10 if possible.

I need a sponsor because this change requires the regeneration of
"generated-configure.sh" (which I've included in the webrev for your
convenience only) and because it touches a HotSpot file and external
contributors still can't push such changes :(

Thank you and best regards,
