Known Issues


GTK+ 3.20 and Later Unsupported by Swing
Due to incompatible changes in the GTK+ 3 library versions 3.20 and later, the Swing GTK Look and Feel does not render some UI components when using this library. Therefore, Linux installations with versions of GTK+ 3.20 and above are not supported for use by the Swing GTK Look And Feel in this release.

See JDK-8219072



TLS anon and NULL Cipher Suites are Disabled
The TLS anon (anonymous) and NULL cipher suites have been added to the jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms security property and are now disabled by default.

See JDK-8211883


Linux Native Code Checks
Additional safeguards to protect against buffer overruns in native code have been enabled on Linux. If a buffer overrun is encountered the system will write the message “stack smashing detected” and the program will exit. Issues of this type should be reported to your vendor.

Enable Java Access Bridge Check Box Option in Control Panel Is Not Available with JDK 11 Installer
The Java Access Bridge checkbox in the Windows Control Panel is not available in JDK11. This registration was part of the public JRE installation. However, Java Access Bridge can still be enabled and disabled by following these steps:

  1. Copy %JAVAHOME%\bin\windowsaccessbridge-64.dll to %WINDOWSHOME%\SYSTEM32. A reboot might be required after this step.
  2. Run %JAVAHOME%\bin\jabswitch /enable and %JAVAHOME%\bin\jabswitch /disable.
  • %WINDOWSHOME% is the directory where Microsoft Windows is installed (for example, C:\WINDOWS)
  • %JAVAHOME% is the directory where your JDK is installed (for example, C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-11)
