Test Day: Java 8,10,11

Why test Java

Test Day will focus on OpenJDK 11 and OpenJDK 10. Currently, we have java-1.8.0-openjdk as main JDK in Fedora. It accompanied java-1.7.0-openjdk as JRE for a year, and replaced it in buildroot in F21. Similarly, as did java-1.7.0-openjdk to java-1.6.0-openjdk in F16 as parallel JRE and replaced it in F17 in build root and main JDK. However, today the situation is more complicated. Oracle changed release process, see OpenJDK 11 summary and OpenJDK 10 summary, so currently, in F27 and up, you have java-1.8.0-openjdk as main JDK, java-openjdk as rolling release of STS JDK 10, and java-11-openjdk as techpreview of future LTS JDK. Javaws is provided in another package – icedtea-web

When

On September 26 2018, Java folks and Fedora QA are holding a Test Day for users to try out and test this new Fedora Workstation variant.

Where

The wiki page for the Java Test Day has a lot of good information on what and how to test. After you’ve done some testing, you can log your results in the test day result page

Details are available on the wiki page. We need your help, please share this post with others.
