Build Infrastructure Group

The Build Infrastructure Group is comprised of developers involved in the design, implementation, and maintanence of the JDK build system.

Introduction

The JDK basically uses a traditional configure && make style of building, but the underlying design of the configure script and makefiles is untraditionally sofisticated, due to the special demands of the project.

If you are a developer or end user wanting to build and/or test the JDK, please see the following resources for instructions:

Before building, make sure you checkout the correct code base. The most recent development version from the JDK Project is available to clone from http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk/jdk. For older versions, the general rule is to use the update releases, and not the GA release, e.g. http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk-updates/jdk11u-dev. See the JDK Updates Project for details.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to subscribe to our mailing list and ask questions!
