reminder to update this package ;)

I requested jdk8-j9-bin to be merged to this package because of the inconsistent naming + broken PKGBUILD, and the request has been accepted. It would be good if you put it in the replaces list, so pacman will prompt users to replace that package when this one is installed, and so that AUR helpers may propose this as a replacement if they implement this feature.

@KernelFreeze, The latest version is now at 202-b08_openj9-0.12.0, please update it from your end, whenever you get the time.

Meanwhile, I have edited your PKGBUILD accordingly to get it to install and I can confirm that it works on my system.

openjdk9 was indeed a problem (broke zotero) so I switched back to your version.

@WFCody OpenJ9 seems to be jdk9 only? And as the source is available, we may build it from source. But I don't think I am available and will do anything in the near future... So just create your own package if you like ;-)
