Want to know more about the Quality of OpenJDK?
By mohanpraveen on May 09, 2007
Today Sun has fulfilled the promise of open-sourcing fully buildable Java Development Kit (JDK) version for Java Platform Standard Edition (Java SE) to the OpenJDK Community as free software under the GNU General Public License version two (GPLv2) and this is an exciting news for all of us. There are plenty of opportunities for the community to get involved in OpenJDK in terms of finding bugs, fixing bugs, testing OpenJDK on platforms, video cards, browsers, locales and hardware that has not been attempted at Sun earlier and so much more.
Being a Quality Engineer at Sun, I am looking forward to your participation in taking the quality of OpenJDK to greater heights. You can get a feel of how things are done on the quality side of OpenJDK by visiting the OpenJDK Quality Portal which offers information on the quality process, Test Methodologies, JDK Quality Metrics, Articles and white papers and a Quality FAQ.
Sun has a broad range of testing activities and test suites but nevertheless the community have got much wider knowledge base of customer applications, environments and data that sun has not attempted before. It is important for both of us to make JDK/OpenJDK work seamlessly with those specifics and OpenJDK Quality Portal is a good opportunity to collectively work together to share the knowledge and make OpenJDK meet all our requirements more closely.
Please visit our collaboration page for more information on how you can collaborate with the OpenJDK Quality team at Sun. You can also email your suggestions and ideas on improving OpenJDK quality to OpenJDK Quality Discussion alias. Watch out for more updates on the OpenJDK Quality Portal.
