I've built with jdk8... Like this:

env JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk PATH=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/jre/bin:$PATH makepkg -sic

But if you want to execute jitsi, it's better to set it globally:

archlinux-java set java-8-openjdk

See pinned comment.

@jotoho when I include something in my home, I usually use $HOME variable, so you can do: export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/scripts"

@jotoho Never heard about this security concern... I've never added "." in my $PATH so user that does this has to know the possible consequenses. To have ~/scripts in PATH should not be a problem. Can you provide an example so I can reproduce or can you provide a patch to avoid it?

Thank you

@MichaelARCH in a pinned comment you have a makepkg temporary command to build jitsi with JDK8.

On my system OpenJDK14 (default) and OpenJDK8 are installed. And I want to keep openJDK14 as standard for other purposes. During Build, got the error:
/jitsi/src/jitsi-5633/build.xml:269: Compile failed; see the compiler error output for details.

Do you recommend that I change it temporarily for the build to Version 8, like described here? Or to prefer another procedure?

Thanks, Michael

Hi Figue,

Do you think you can adapt the PKGBUILD in a way that the java compiler is forced to OpenJDK8 before compiling? For example, in pseudo:

JavaSettings originalJavaSetting = RequestCurrentJava();
boolean changeJavaVersion = originalJavaSetting != openjdk-8;

if (changeJavaVersion) {
  force openjdk-8

compile and package jitsi

if (changeJavaVersion) {
  restore originalJavaSetting;

Ok... If the version is not stable enough I will revert the last commit. I don't use anymore Jisti, so I'm maintaining just for you guys. If anyone is interested in maintaining this package, please comment and I'll orphan.

Ok, after the update and having it running in java-8-openjdk again, my installation kept SegFaulting and CoreDumping when I was some seconds into the application, no matter what I did or did not do...

Before the update it was just working fine and everything I changed was just to newly build jitsi...

To have it running stable again I had to delete all my jitsi settings in ~/.jitsi and had to rebuild them using the jitsi settings dialogs...

ThankYou @figue for packaging jitsi, it's my daily sip-phone app and I really appreciate having it at hand...
