Is openjdk-17 suitable for jicofo and jitsi-videobridge2 on Debian 11?

Greetings. On a freshly installed Debian 11 system I did this today:

apt-get install jitsi-meet

and to my surprise, openjdk-17-jre-headless got installed.

This package is available in Debian 11, but it’s not the default/recommended jre version in Debian 11 (that would be
openjdk-11-jre-headless as a dependency of default-jre-headless).

The reason for this is that jitsi-meet depends on java8-runtime-headless | java8-runtime | java11-runtime-headless | java11-runtime which are purely virtual packages provided by openjdk-17-jre-headless.

Simple question: Is jicofo and videobridge actually known to work with openjdk-17, or should this considered a packaging glitch? (i.e. not really intended openjdk-17 to be installed).


Even they may work, you may see problems when using java 17. For sure under load the bridge is not tuned for the java 17 GC.
