The bug is not in Debian but is due to the latest release of OpenJDK 8
which improved validation of the class-path in JAR files:
| Improved Validation of Class-Path Attribute in JAR File Manifest
| The JAR file specification states that URLs in the Class-Path manifest
attribute must be relative,
| though this has not been enforced. To better conform to the JAR
specification, absolute URLs
| (those that include a scheme) are now ignored. For JAR files not
loaded from the file system,
| Class-Path entries navigating to a parent directory (using "../") are
| Applications depending on a JAR file loaded from an absolute URL
element specified in
| Class-Path attribute may encounter a ClassNotFoundException. The
historical behavior can be
| restored by setting a new system property,
| to true. Debugging info for Class-Path entries that are ignored can be
printed to stderr by
| setting -Djdk.net.URLClassPath.disableClassPathURLCheck=debug.
Any Jar file that uses non-relative URLs in the manifest will suffer
This affects the maven-surefire-plugin and under the latest OpenJDK 8 no
tests can be run. This is at least true for JUnit 5 tests.
One solution as posted is to ignore the system class loader:
Note however that later in the thread this is stated that it breaks some
Spring Boot integration tests. So there may not be a one size fits
solution. Either try modifying the configuration to disable the system
class loader, or downgrade Open JDK 8 until the surefire plugin is fixed.
