Description Dirk Stoecker 2014-11-18 14:06:25 UTC
See e.g. here http://josm.openstreetmap.de/ticket/10675

The 8u40 version produces

ERROR: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Could not initialize class com.sun.imageio.plugins.jpeg.JPEGImageReader

Searching a bit in the net I got the impression, that maybe JPEG handling changed and thus JPEG support was not compiled in?

At least it's disturbing to get more and more bug reports for JOSM. Please fix the Java package in 13.2.

I can confirm this.
The package is also/still broken in Tumbleweed.

The jar from
runs with 

java version "1.7.0_71"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.5.3) (suse-5.3-x86_64)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.65-b04, mixed mode)

but not with

openjdk version "1.8.0_40"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_40-b22)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.40-b25, mixed mode)
