Java SE: Current Status
Oracle has proposed to increase the release cadence of Java SE to every six months, and indicated they will begin distributing builds of OpenJDK under the GPLv2+CPE license. In this keynote, Donald Smith, Sr. Director of Product Management for Java SE at Oracle will give a quick overview of how OpenJDK plays a key role in the Java SE ecosystem, followed by details of the proposed plan and it’s current status. It will be followed by a panel whereby the two key proposals – increased cadence and Oracle produced OpenJDK builds – will be discussed for pros and potential gotchas. Panelists include Daniel Bryant, Stephen Colebourne, Peter Lawrey and Martijn Verburg.
