Hi all, after switching to java11 starting a REPL is now really slow, sometimes timing out. Any ideas?

seems to be a lot of that going around

on latest java 8 and 11

you on linux perchance?

similar threads in a few other channels


on mac, java 8 was work but now the latest java 8 ( is not either, times out every time


@alexmiller thanks for the heads up, I am going to try out java 9 and see how that goes


java 9 works for me

Alex Miller (Clojure team)03:02:55

9 and 10 are no longer supported

Alex Miller (Clojure team)03:02:10

just fyi, they are effectively dead


yep I know, but at least I can get a REPL going right now. Java 11 was unworkable.


Java 10 is also working for me too, thanks for the help @alexmiller. I will dig into Java 11 again later.

I think it's the latest update of 8 and 11 that is problematic


that seems to be the case for me thanks, I will probably try out a earlier version of 11 when I have time but was using brew so it was only convenient to get the latest right now.


Could it somehow have to do with changes in the trusted certificates, I thought something like that can by, if it sometimes works, it seems something different?

no, it's reproducible with no network access - please see #clojure-dev for further discussion on this
