I wasn't aware that 32 bit jvms disappeared. In fact, until recently,
OpenJDK didn't have any binary release at all so it's more like 64 bit
builds appeared rather than anything disappearing...

You can just build your jdk for 32 bit and there are a number of
downstream vendors supporting or otherwise offering 32 bit version
still also for OpenJDK 9.
