Hi Mayur,

Welcome to the OpenJDK community!

With 18 years of Java development you are likely looking for something more exciting to dig into, but as a general comment I just want to point out that there is a label in the bug database which indicates that an issue is suitable for someone new to the codebase. The label is called 'starter' and you can query the database to find these issues like this:

There are currently mainly starter issues in the JVM area (C++ development) but there are at least a handfull issues in the libraries that would be suitable for Java developers.

Even for a very experienced Java developer it might be worth looking at one or two of these just to get into the JDK codebase and see how issues are generally handled in the OpenJDK.

I assume you've already seen this page:
If not, it's a good start to subscribe to the lists that you find interesting.

Happy hacking!

If you don’t need any help as of now, I will be watching the threads and picking things as they come. I have been working on Java for 18 years now and done certification as well. So hopefully, I will do my part to contribute to this great language.
