How about a prebuild Oracle VM appliance for openjdk development (at least for the linux-setup). I will get it working without such a appliance but i think it can be a solution to lower the "entry-hurdle" in openjdk contribution.

That's a good idea, Sebastian.
As we move to using Virtual Machines more here inside Oracle, I'll check
to see if it would be possible to make our Linux build and test images
available for outside use. VirtualBox, VMware, and OVM (xen)-based
images are most likely what could be provided. Note that we'll not be
able to make Solaris or Windows available, as neither of them have free
Note that I can't promise anything, other than that I'll look at making
our VM images available.
