OpenJDK 6: Sources for b07 and b08 published

The sources for OpenJDK 6 b07 were posted on March 20 followed by b08 on March 27.

The most notable fixes in b07 were:

  • Resolving the last remaining JCK signature test failure (6636951); other JCK failures remain.

  • Making window decorations appear (6586752).

  • Updating to the 1.1 version of the OpenJDK™ trademark notification.

  • Enabling the out-of-the-box build to succeed without any binary plugs being present (6672710). If the plugs aren't used, neither the midi synthesizer nor SNMP will work at runtime.

After b07, Red Hat reported that the source bundle contained some suspect binary artifacts. In b08, we addressed all the make and src artifacts and some of the test ones (6679994). We're reviewing how to make the licensing of the remaining non-source files in the bundle clearer. Additionally, a separate build problem was addressed (6613927)

At present, there is not a particular time line for the next code drop. The fixes in the next drop will include time zone updates (6650748, 6679340).

Comments:

Joe, I see that 3rd party licenses document includes note about ASM bytecode manipulation and analysis framework. Do you know where it is actually being used in OpenJDK?

Thank´s for the useful information. I can inspire you by saying that I also would like an answer to the same question as Mr. Kuleshov, namely do you know where it is actually being used in OpenJDK

Eugene and Søren, I grepped through the JDK sources for ASM classes, but didn't find any. It is possible ASM was in use at some point and since removed without the 3rd party readme being updated. I'll do a bit more investigating.
