So, just to update you people about the state of Java in openSUSE
1) We now have maven 3.6.2 packaged including crucial plug-ins and we
also have all the xmvn 3.1.0 packages that allow maven to use local
(system-installed) packages. So, there is already a number of packages
in Tumbleweed that are built using maven.
2) Recently gradle 4.4.1 entered Tumbleweed. I know that it is
relatively older version, but that is the version that allows us to
use again the xmvn connectors and build using the system packages with
maven metadata and thus to build the whole stuff without having to
download dependencies from internet or use a convoluted binary kits.
Currently, it could be possible to upgrade to gradle 4.5.1 if someone
will try, but it would also mean to forward port all the currently
applied patches in order to not loose the capacity to use system
packages. After that, one could endeavour in gradually upgrading
further, but that is not just a mechanical task and it requires first
to make oneself familiar with xmvn-connector-gradle's workings and
with gradle's code. Any volunteer is welcome and will be supported.
3) Nevertheless, this rather old gradle has patches forward-ported
that allows it to be used with java 11. And besides that, it was
enough to allow us to package from source openjfx 8 that landed in
Factory yesterday under the name java-1_8_0-openjfx and is meant to
work with java-1_8_0-openjdk.

Does anyone know why there is no Apache Maven
available in the
default packages? There is this "maven-local", which I think is
not the maven program itself.
Packaging Maven properly is no easy task. There is work being done
feel free to contribute.
There's also a repackaging of the official Maven binaries at
but that's not going to Factory anytime (due to it being a simple
repackaging of binaries ).
