Build Infrastructure Group

This group consists of those developers interested in and actively developing or maintaining the JDK build process.

The mailing list may include anyone interested in tracking any JDK build issues.


The basic and traditional build process of the JDK involves machine setup (installation of necessary products), setting shell environment variables, and running GNU Make. There are variations between Solaris, Linux, and Windows builds, but all require access to a C/C++ compiler. See the JDK Build README for details.

The Build Infrastructure Project is the conversion project to a "configure && make" style of building.
