OpenJDK Mercurial Transition Update 5
Well we had a few snafus with Build 22.
A hotspot bug
managed to sneak in, and the jaxws workspace lost some GPL markings
and we will need to back out the jaxws integration in Build 23
(this should be temporary, expect jaxws to be re-integrated in a few
The split of the langtools, corba, jaxp, and jaxws workspaces has
continued to cause some minor issues with regards to doing partial
builds from the j2se workspace. Most of these have been resolved
in build 23 coming up.
We did have a few changes to the plan.
Build 23 is being used (in TeamWare) to hold changes like
whitespace normalization, SCCS keyword removal, and
also the j2se name change ("j2se" is being changed to "jdk").
No team integrations will be allowed in Build 23 with the exception of
emergency fixes (like the above hotspot bug fix).
Build 24 will be in Mercurial and the files managed by TeamWare
in Build 23 will be the same files that enter the initial
Build 24 Mercurial repositories.
There are a few restructuring things that will happen though as
the Mercurial images are created. There will not be a "control"
repository, instead there will be a Makefile at the top of
the forest which is the same Makefile that used to be at
So when you used to:
- cd control/make && gnumake
Now you would:
OpenJDK forest for more information on the layout.
Build 23 is being worked on now and should be available within
a week, doing the Mercurial conversion for Build 24 should be fairly
straight forward, but getting everything all setup for the
integrators and developers is not a trivial task, so once we
have repositories it may take a few weeks to get it all setup.
Hopefully, read-only MASTER repositories can be made available as
soon as possible, and maybe sooner so that we can get help trying
things out and looking for issues.
