I have OpenJFX and OpenJDK built. I have also set up TortoiseHg and am
working with Eclipse. I have several questions:
1. Are the instructions at
https://wiki.openjdk.java.net/display/OpenJFX/Using+an+IDE still valid from
JDK 8? There are old TODOs there. If not, can I get a quick update?
2. After importing the projects to Eclipse and working on the source, what
steps need to be taken when the changes are to:
a. only the docs?
b. Java code?
c. Prism code?
Do I need to rebuild the JDK with JavaFX, rebuild only JavaFX, only compile
etc? What tests do I need to run (e.g., I doubt I need to run regression
tests when changing JavaDocs)?
3. Eclipse uses EJC (which I never had trouble with). Can this cause
4. After creating a local changeset and assuming there is already a JIRA
issue for it and the fix approach was discussed, can I just push it and it
will enter a review queue? Do I need to ask someone specifically for a
review on the changeset (
https://wiki.openjdk.java.net/display/OpenJFX/Code+Ownership is old...)?
