Incidents submitted via bugs.sun.com go into a different system and JIRA 
project, I suspect the ID you received is the issue number for that 
system. If moved into the JDK JIRA as a bug then it gets a new issue 
number. You are not the first to ask about this, it does make it 
impossible to find incidents once they are moved into the bug database.

As Rémi said, fixes go into the main-line first.  The Backports section 
will list the back-port issues created for the issue.
