Just wanted to confirm some issues:
I am interested in building the latest (tip) of jdk8 GA release.
1- jdk8 GA is different from jdk8u (u is for updates), I should get the src from http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk8/jdk8
2- The latest tagged version of the src is "jdk8-b132 9106:43cb25339b55"
3- I confirm that I have the latest src (for GA) by running "hg tags" like
unix> cd srcDir/jdk ; hg tags | head -2
I go ahead and build everything and then run "java -version" and I see
openjdk version "1.8.0-20141202"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0-20141202-HDS-174701)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.0-b70, mixed mode)
Q- Why am I seeing "build 25.0-b70" ? Does this "b70" has anything to do with above "jdk8-b132" ?
