Support for building on different platforms come in two varieties: official support and community support.
Oracle defines a number of official build platforms, with carefully specified versions of operating systems, compilers and other build tools. If you report a failure to build on any of these platforms, the report will be processed with high priority from the build team on Oracle. Under normal circumstances, a build on any of these platforms will always succeed.
In in extension to the official build platforms, OpenJDK can normally be built on many more platforms. For these platforms, there is no guarantee that the build will succeed. The Oracle build team can help to solve some problems encountered, but only on a best-effort basis. In addition to the Oracle build team, the OpenJDK community at large is welcome to help with making OpenJDK compile on these platforms.
The official and community supported build platforms are listed below. Note that build support is different on different versions of the JDK. We welcome updates from the community of the list of community supported platforms. If you have succeeded in building OpenJDK on a platform that is substantially different from the ones already listed, please document your experience in the list.
