Hi, I have posted some info on the archi forum about java versions;

To use openjdk in Kubuntu I install it alongside the default java and simply use the following in a script before calling the binary: export PATH="/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-amd64/bin/:${PATH}" export JAVA_HOME="/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-amd64"

Phil answer that to support Java > 8 one shall add --add-modules=ALL-SYSTEM in the archi.ini and things shall work.

The download link can be copied out from firefox. Just download, click on the download-arrow, right-click on the archi-tar-file and select "copy download-link". Easy as pancake. (finding the link in the scripted page was difficult though, I never found it).

Cheers, Erik

Hi Glomzubuk, Thanks for your feedback!

I'm going to fix the dependencies as soon as possible. About the launcher, we need it to force archi to use Java 8, since it doesn't support new versions of Java: if someone has another version set as default it crashes.

Hi Mark, Thanks for volunteering to maintain this package.

Just wanted you to know that your launcher script is dependent on jre8-openjdk, but the dependencies of the package states java-runtime=8, so someone with for example would be left out.

Otherwise the rest of the modifications seems good (even if i don't see why we need a launcher since /usr/lib/jvm/default is already in the PATH and is managed by archlinux-java, feel free to correct me if i'm wrong)

Also, you can paste this in the console on the download page to get the archive link (for now) : window.location.origin + download_dir + mapping["archi_lnx64_tgz"]

The download link has changed again: . If you want, I can mantain this package.

Why yes, of course Archimate put the download behind an incredibly annoying block of Javascript code. Had to dive into the website source to assemble the f*cking download link, which btw changed AGAIN. This is getting tiresome.

I don't use this program anymore, if anybody else wants to maintain it, let me know. It's become to much of a burden to me.

@Paddlaren I set the required Java version to the one recommended by archi (version 8).

I just want to share that I am unable to run Archi using openjdk 10 but if I switch to openjdk 8 it works. Don't know if this is a problem for others as well but I though I might share just in case...

Did not install using the AUR so I am not sure if the AUR might need to be updated in the dependency section.

Cheers, Erik
