JDK 9 Outreach - The Awesome Parts

Over the last couple of years, the OpenJDK Quality Outreach effort has become a good source of high quality feedback from many popular FOSS projects starting with JDK 7 Updates, JDK 8 and JDK 8 Updates. It now plays the same role for JDK 9.

  With a number of large changes being planned for JDK 9 that are

being developed through the OpenJDK community, reaching out to popular FOSS projects well ahead of a release and keeping them informed of upcoming changes, collecting as well as acting on their feedback created a great feedback loop.

  Today, around 80 open source projects and communities participate

in testing of early access builds of the JDK, reporting issues they find, and helping get them resolved in time. In this session, we'll look at some examples of how they have helped make JDK 9 better, and discuss how we can together improve the OpenJDK Quality Outreach effort for JDK 10.
