How to (re)join

Post by username »

I admit, I have been out of the loop for some time. How do I get the current setup?
The in Github/develop says, you require Oracles JDK10, whereto you have to give Oracle your Grandmother's Maiden Name.
The currently released MapTool runs on AdoptJDK 14, as far as the release notes are concerned.
AdoptJDK (11+) doesn't come with JFX, so you habe to install OpenJFX separately. Those installations don't go along with each other on my Ubuntu Xenial, as it seems. OpenJFX 8 uses /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64, AdoptJDk uses /usr/lib/jvm/adoptopenjdk-14-openj9-amd64. I can't have both as JAVA_HOME. Maybe I am missing something.
