AdoptOpenJDK: Enhancing OpenJDK’s “build, test, contribute” pipeline

Quickie Sessions

The AdoptOpenJDK project provides high quality Java SE binaries based upon an open, common, audited, build infrastructure.

In this talk we describe the recent work that brings OpenJDK-based development to everyone by developing a modern devops pipeline to take your idea from discussion to final delivery.

Hear about how AdoptOpenJDK established a large heterogeneous build farm in the community, is using that to manage new build/test infrastructure, and has created a flexible website site for the release of builds.

Join us as we show the lifecycle of a patch from concept to delivery in hundreds of thousands of downloads. This talk will appeal to devops and Java developers alike.
