Developing for Splunk Enterprise

Can I use a non-Oracle java or non-Oracle openJDK with DB_Connect

Explorer

My security people want me to use an openJDK product from Azul Systems. I get an error when saving the configuration settings

{'jre_need': 'Need Oracle Corporation JRE version 1.8 or OpenSDK 1.8', 'jre_using': 'Using Azul Systems, Inc. JRE version 1.8, OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM', 'message': 'Unsupported JRE detected'} validate java command: /opt/splunk-nexusJDK/zulu8.44.0.10-sa-jdk8.0.242-linux_x64/jre/bin/java.

Azul suggested this override in JVM options "-XX:+OverrideVMProperties -Djava.vm.vendor="Oracle Corporation" ". That didn't work either. DB_Connect works fine with standard Oracle Java and Oracle's openJDK

Has anyone been successful using an alternative java engine like this? Thanks in advance.
