Are there prebuilt binaries of (open)jdk8-b110 to (open)jdk8-b120 still available somewhere?

Since the rollout of JDK8 via the auto-update started, I received
several reports of users complaining about servere focus-issues in one
of our applications running on different platforms. The cause of the
problem is that we open a JPopup for autocompletion support below a
JTextField, and immediatly after calling show() we are calling
requestFocus() on the JTextField - so that the user can continue to
type while we hiding and showing new popups with updated content.
However with Java-8 the requestFocus() often leads to JRootPane
receiving focus, and not the JTextField itself. I've worked-arround
the issue by calling setFocuseable(false) on the JPopup. Nonetheless
there is a regression or at least a behaviour-change in Java8 I would
like to track down.

I commit in question happend between b110 (still works) and b120
(broken), however the build-system changed quite heavily and it is a
real pain to get every build-number compiling.

What would help a lot would be pre-built binaries of jdk8-b110 to
jdk8-b120, so I could at least find the first build with the issue.
Are those binaries of oracle's EA builds available at
still availbale somewhere? (I know this is kind of off-topic, but the
issue is present in openjdk as well as Oracle's binary distribution).

Thank you in advance, Clemens
