The Wisdom Of Crowd Testing OpenJDK

In the beginning, there were bugs. In order to find them faster, before a JDK release, the OpenJDK Adoption Group began a quality outreach effort. Initially focused on JDK 8, the effort expanded to cover JDK 7 Updates, JDK 8 Updates and JDK 9 OpenJDK Projects. It now lists dozens of open source projects and communities that participate in testing early access builds of the JDK, report issues they find, and help get them resolved in time.

In this session, you'll learn what worked, and what didn't, and what you can do to join the OpenJDK crowd testing fun with your own open source project to help us find showstopper bugs before they can bite.
