Some of us have looked into using hudson .. but nothing is firmly
settled on what to do with it, whether to host it externally, etc. So
far it looks like Hudson is really nifty.
Okay, so since Brad gave me my cue ... what does Quality do?
Oh, we've already published some pages in the Quality Group section of
the openjdk site.. but it only touches the surface.
What happens varies based on the component area. The VM SQE team has an
extensive set of tests which run every night on (if I remember right)
the nightly build of the hotspot workspace. The other teams have
various other strategies depending on the needs of their component.
One of those is the "PIT" or Pre-Integration Testing. PIT's are
performed when a developer thinks they're ready for their code to be
checked in. They request a PIT run, and we run some portion of the test
suites based on what the change is and which suite is more aligned with
the checkin. If it passes the PIT, a 'PIT Certificate' is issued,
otherwise the developer is sent back to their code to ponder some more ;-).
There's also testing of the promoted build that's currently on a
bi-weekly schedule. We do this before you guys see the bits on the
