Well, Java 7 worked in the past. v8 I am not sure tbh. Load the 32 bit offline setup (jre-8u171-windows-i586.exe) and try this one. No guarantee though.

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

I have installed Java 8 in ReactOS, some years ago now. It warns you that your OS is not supported, but you need to just continue with the installation and it should work.
Please keep the Windows classic (9x/2000) look and feel.
The layman's guides to - debugging - bug reporting - compiling - with some complementary scripts.
They may help you with a problem, so do have a look at them.

Yes, that message will show up for sure because Oracle gives no official support for 2003/XP anymore. It can be ignored as you said.

I was able to Download and use JDK 8u192 Early Access build from
http://jdk.java.net/8/

I believe this is the OpenJDK binary for Windows provided by Oracle. I was redirected here when searching for a Windows OpenJDK binary
http://openjdk.java.net/
There is no installer so you have to place the folder and its contents somewhere and add the executable location to the path.

I compiled and ran several java programs I've written. Two of them use the RXTX serial port library and they both detect attached serial ports.
I have not been able to test actual serial communications yet but it looks promising.

I used ReactOS 0.4.9
