Key features of JDK/JRE 8.0.x are:

  • 32-bit and 64-bit Hotspot 8.0 Virtual Machine

    • HP-UX 11i v3 (11.31)

The HP-UX 11i Java Development Kit (JDK) for the Java™ 2 Platform Standard Edition 8 (Java™ SE 8) provides the programming tools and runtime environment that allow you to deploy version 8.0 technology with the best performance on HPE Itanium® 11i v3 (11.31) system. The JDK includes the HP-UX 11i Java Runtime Environment (JRE). Java 8.0.x has only one download depot file, which contains both the combined JDK/JRE and the stand-alone JRE. During the installation procedure you will be able to choose which one you want to install.

Required Patches

Some HP-UX patches may be required for your Java version. First, we recommend that you have the latest HP-UX Quality Pack installed. To obtain it, go to the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Support Center site at (you need an HP-UX support contract to obtain quality packs and patches). Then to see what patches are required for your Java version and HP-UX version or Quality Pack, go to the HP-UX Java Patch Information page, and follow the recommendations for your Java version. The Java Patch Information page also shows you how to determine which Quality Pack is installed on your system. JDK/JRE 8.0.x patch requirements are the same as for 6.0, plus any additional ones listed in the Java 8.0.x Release Notes.

Known Issues:

  • is implemented using mmap on the underlying operating system.   On HPE Integrity Itanium® servers running HP-UX 11i, multiple mmap calls of overlapping regions of a single file with the MAP_SHARED flag specified in the mmap call, would result in an error. (See the mmap manpages for more details).

    To workaround this problem,
    -Xmpas:on can be used. For an MPAS process, each call to mmap is independent of other mappings made by the same process.

    java -d32 -Xmpas:on <java class>
    java -d64 -Xmpas:on <java class>

    This causes the mpas-enabled Java executable java_q4p to be run, which exists for both 32 and 64 bit. Making the default Java driver mpas might have a slight negative performance impact.

    -Xmpas is available on Java and later.
  • See the Java 8.0.x Release Notes for any additional known issues.
