In accordance with the OpenJDK guidelines , I would like to start the discussion of a new Project to provide tools of use to OpenJDK developers while working on the OpenJDK code base. Such tools currently include test tools and Mercurial extensions; it is envisaged that additional tools will be added over time, subject to the Project Lead's approval.
There are a number of initial candidates for inclusion in such a Project.
jtreg is the regression test harness for the OpenJDK platform.
It is currently just available via source bundles .
jtharness is the test framework underlying jtreg .
sigtest is a set of utilities relating to API signature checking .
* the Mercurial "jcheck" extension
jcheck provides simple validity checks on the contents of a changeset
It is expected that most of these tools will have their own separate communities, and so each tool should have its own repositories and mailing list.
