Please, I would like to understand this, can you elaborate?

I thought in stripping it, but I am still not sure if any problem would
appear. What is the command you used to strip?

In OpenJDK, stripped, it becomes 130M. In the strip log:

Does this include the sources (compressed and uncompressed) as in my
case? If so, please, would you post the switches used?
