Product: Ports & Packages Version: Latest Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Some People Priority: --- Component: Individual Port(s) Assignee: java@FreeBSD.org Reporter: email@example.com Flags: maintainer-feedback?(java@FreeBSD.org) Assignee: java@FreeBSD.org In java/openjdk8 FreeBSD added a custom WatchService implementation based on libinotify. https://www.freshports.org/commit.php?category=java&port=openjdk8&files=yes&message_id=201812270952.wBR9qrhJ083942@repo.freebsd.org Since openjdk17 is another LTS release, would it be possible to add this to the FreeBSD openjdk17 port as well? My use case is sbt (scala builder), while it officially recommends openjdk8 (for now), it works fine with openjdk17 (my app uses some 17 functionality and doesn't care about supporting 8) except for watching for file changes. The default polling is not only slow but also does not work reliably. Using openjdk8 sbt file watching works perfectly. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
