we are aiming to remove libdb-java package from Fedora-rawhide, as we are
currently preparing for jdk update from jdk-1.8 to jdk-11 in Fedora
rawhide. The problem is that we are unable to rebuild this package with
jdk-11. It is still possible to "hack" it and rebuild it with jdk-1.8, but
that can cause unexpected runtime behaviour according to JVM-11, which will
soon be default in Fedora-rawhide.
There seems to be no packages, which depend directly to libdb-java and
upstream does not support version 5.3.28 anymore.
If anyone has any reasons why this should not be made, or someone is
currently active user of this JDBC connector, please leave a comment with
your opinion in the tracker  mentioned below.
There is also an existing tracker for deprecating libdb in Fedora , so
this can be understand as a first step.
Additional info about jdk-11 here .
