Hi VicWang,

[1] contains a high-level description on how to contribute to the OpenJDK.

The most important points are:
 - you have to sign the Oracle Contribution Agreement [2]
 - changes usually go into the latest development repository (jdk/jdk
[3] (for core libraries), jdk/client [4] (for Sound/AWT/Swing), jdk/hs
[5] (for Hotspot))
 - small changes can be sent directly to the corresponding mailing list
 - you need to find a sponsor (on the mailing list) who opens a bug in
the Java Bug System and reviews/pushes your change.


PS: your confidentiality signature makes no sense when posting to a
public mailing list
