Thank you very much, I can confirm this is working with the latest 8

I had to install devel/libffi to satisfy a dependency for java executable.
I unpacked the openjdk tarball into /usr/local and included the bin path
into my PATH environmental variable.
Simple hello world program compiles and runs... brilliant :*) java on
