> in my opinion it’s definitely no good news to move from JIRA to JBS. While Jira is a very good and popular bug tracking system, the JDK JBS is a pain. With JBS the community efforts will decrease. It’s too complicated to be part of the Java community if you are forced to first sign a commitment… It’s a step backward :( Like other decisions like stop of SceneBuilder builds, no official mobile ports and so on. Sorry, I’m very disappointed of the current strategy of Oracle.
JBS for OpenJDK *is* JIRA:

>> As most of you are aware, JavaFX uses its own JIRA bug tracker . The JDK Bug System  (JBS) is the JIRA bug tracker used by the OpenJDK Community. With the OpenJFX Project being a part of this Community, it is time for us to move away from our separate bug tracker and make use of JBS. This will allow us to leverage the greater infrastructure investments being made and lessen the burden of having to maintain our own infrastructure, and consolidates all JDK bugs in one place. The target date for this transition is the second half of May.
>> The issues currently in the RT project in JavaFX JIRA will be folded into the JDK project in JBS. Details will follow on the mapping, but here are the highlights:
>> - A new "javafx" component will be created in the JDK project
>> - Most existing JavaFX JIRA components will be sub-components of the "javafx" component
>> - The mapping from existing "RT-nnnnn" bug ID to new "JDK-mmmmmmm" bug ID will be maintained by JBS such that searching for RT-nnnnn will take you to the right JDK-mmmmmmm bug.
>> A JBS account will be needed to directly report new bugs or comment on existing bugs. Most application developers will file new JavaFX bugs at bugs.java.com  just like other JDK bugs. The requirement to get a JBS account  is to have a role of Author or higher in an OpenJDK Project (e.g., jdk9 or openjfx).
>> Our advice to those of you actively involved and participating in the OpenJFX Project is to consider joining the OpenJDK as a Contributor  by signing the Oracle Contributor Agreement (OCA) . This is a necessary first step in contributing to any OpenJDK Project, including OpenJFX. It allows you to provide patches that we might accept for OpenJFX, and is also a step along the path to becoming an Author. The general guideline  is that the Author role may be requested by a Project Contributor who has contributed two non-trivial patches that have been accepted and pushed.
>> As part of this transition, we will enable anonymous viewing of bugs (no need to login just to look at a bug) and they will be easily searchable online.
>> We apologize for the inconvenience caused to OpenJFX Participants by this upcoming change to the bug database write access policy. We really appreciate your commitment to improving and growing the JavaFX technology.
