Java - backports (Xenial only)

PPA description

Backports of Java stack (through OpenJDK 11) from Bionic for Xenial only.

Much of the Java stack from Bionic is backported here for Xenial, with the most recent packages (those originally published for Bionic from Feb 2019 onwards) all built against OpenJDK 11.x just as for Bionic (and newer).

The associated PPA at this Launchpad site is ppa:savoury1/jdk-xenial which has OpenJDK 9, 10, and 11 (LTS) all available for Xenial. Thus, to upgrade much of the Java stack on a Xenial system one can do the following steps:

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/jdk-xenial
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/java-xenial
  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
