With the today's release of MAS 8.9.0, Manage 8.5.0 has been switched to use OpenJDK 11, more specifically:
openjdk version "188.8.131.52" 2022-08-12
IBM Semeru Runtime Open Edition 184.108.40.206 (build 220.127.116.11+1)
Eclipse OpenJ9 VM 18.104.22.168 (build openj9-0.33.1, JRE 11 Linux amd64-64-Bit Compressed References 20220818_500 (JIT enabled, AOT enabled)
This should bring support for ARM architecture as IBM Semeru Runtime added support for ARM already in September (as stated here - https://github.com/ibmruntimes/Semeru-Runtimes/issues/33). It'd be great to have ARM support as it'd make it possible to run Manage docker container on MacBooks with M1 chips. This is highly anticipated by our development team.
However, I've found out that the new Manage docker image is based on cp.icr.io/cp/manage/ubi-wlp-manage:2.4.3 which only supports linux/amd64 architecture and no ARM. Is there anything blocking from adding ARM support now? Is there perhaps another base Liberty image with ARM support?
Could anyone from IBM shed some light on this and the plans to introduce ARM support? @Steven Shull
I believe you might clarify this, thanks in advance.
