Thanks for your bug report. This does indeed affect the Linux/Unix build, as well as Mac I believe. This is a duplicate of one I reported when Java support was first rolled in, bug #40111. Please follow up with any comments or patches on that bug report.

I compiled 3.8.1 from source in March 2014 on a fedora-20 x86_64 platform; at this time libjvm.so full path was

By upgrading the system, this file is now  /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk-

So any java command result in a failure as the lib can not be loaded.

During compilation, I set the environment variable JAVA_HOME to /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk, which is itself a link to  /etc/alternatives/java_sdk_1.7.0_openjdk

It seems that this liknk was followed up to the end while building the Java interface; now the jvm lib has moved.

I tried to set JAVA_HOME to /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk-, but this didn't solve the issue.

Would it be possible to add some fallback mechanism in order to try alternatives path for this lib ?
