JDK 9 includes the PowerPC/AIX port.
We are porting most new features of OpenJdk to ppc and aix. We keep tuning and optimizing the port in jdk9.
The JDK 9 port supports the following parts of the OpenJDK:
|aot / graal||no||no||no|
Supported operating systems and processor implementations
AIX: The port supports AIX 6.1 and later. It is tested to be built with xlC 12. Patch level 12.01.0000.0008 or higher is required. We do not support iSeries PASE.
Linux ppc64: We build and run the VM on SLES 11.3 with gcc 4.8, but support it on other Linux distributions, too.
Linux ppc64le: We build and run the VM on SLES 12.1 with gcc 4.8, but support it on other Linux distributions, too.
Processor: The port supports only 64-bit PPC machines. It recognizes Power chips 5 through 8 and generates code optimized for these processors. It lacks an instruction scheduler targeted to Power 6, which is an in-order issueing processor.
