> Java Developers,
> I'm very happy to let you know that today we made the first public
> contribution of code to the OpenJDK project for Mac OS X. This initial
> contribution builds on the hard work of the BSD port, and initially has the
> same functionality. Today's contribution simply modifies the build process
> to create universal binary, and produces a .jdk bundle which is recognized
> by Java Preferences and the JVM detection logic in Mac OS X.
> For more information about the Mac OS X Port project, please check out these

> For those of you who would like to join us hacking on the next generation of
> Java for Mac OS X, please join our mailing list, download the source, and
> spin a build for yourself.
> It has been a long road getting to this point collaborating behind the
> scenes with Sun and now Oracle, but as of today we are on the road to fully
> open development of the Mac OS X port. We look forward to providing more
> code from our collaboration soon, and working with you all.


If you launch the build under Hudson, take a of remove BUILD_NUMBER
and JAVA_HOME env vars set by Hudson or it will break build. ,)
