jdk-dev -- Technical discussion related to the JDK Project


About jdk-dev
English (USA)

This list is for the discussion of general technical issues related to the development of the current JDK main-line feature release. Please use a more narrowly-focused list (e.g., core-libs-dev or hotspot-dev) if appropriate. Discussion of general technical issues related to the development of updates of past releases (e.g., JDK 17, JDK 21) should take place on the jdk-updates-dev list.

This list is not a place to ask questions about how to use the Java Platform or the JDK.

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the jdk-dev Archives.
