Building JDK 11 Together by Dalibor Topic


With the recent release of Java 11, it’s time to look back at the development of the second feature release in the new semi-annual release cadence. Let’s celebrate the many contributions in the OpenJDK Community from many individuals and organizations — we all built JDK 11, together!

JDK 11 Fix Ratio

The overall rate of change in the JDK over time has remained essentially constant for many years, but under the new cadence the rate at which changes are made available has increased dramatically. Instead of making tens of thousands of fixes and around one hundred JEPS available in a humongous release every few years, changes are made available in smaller releases on a more manageable, predictable schedule. These changes can range from large features to small enhancements to routine maintenance, bug fixes, and documentation improvements. Each such change is represented in a single commit for a single issue in the JDK Bug System.

Of the 2,468 JIRA issues marked as fixed in JDK 11, 1,963 were completed by people working for Oracle while 505 were contributed by individual developers and developers working for other organizations. Going through the issues and collating the organization data from assignees results in the following chart of organizations sponsoring the development of fixes in JDK 11: Read the complete article here.
