Description

Fedora recently switched to OpenJDK11 and it appears that that version no longer includes the javah command:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Java11#javah:_No_such_file_or_directory
as a result, the java bindings cannot be built. According to the fedora change page, using java -h should be equivalent, but the syntax is different and I didn't figure out a way to build with java -h. This is mostly my ignorance, I guess, because I have literally never used Java in my life.

Does lasso upstream plan to support OpenJDK 11?

If it's just a command line change, we will make the fix, but as there are no user of the java binding that we know about, as there are lots of native alternative for SAML support, maybe it's time to kill it.

Sounds good to me. I can't find any java-lasso users in Fedora. I asked around if there are any users (so that the users can help fixing the issue), but a quick reverse-dependency search in Fedora didn't turn up anything.
