Do You Want Apple to Share Their JDK Source? Sign The Petition

· Java Zone

What every Java engineer should know about microservices: Reactive Microservices Architecture.  Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

A petition has been created to encourage Apple to contribute their source for Java on the Mac to the OpenJDK project. This would be an excellent resolution, as it gives the Open JDK project a kickstart in targetting Mac OSX, rather than having to start from scratch. The introduction to the petition states

Apple has recently announced that it would prefer if someone else were to continue the development of the JDK for Mac OS X. As Apple's own JDK is mature and well-integrated, we would love to see Apple contributing the source code of the existing JDK for Mac OS X to the OpenJDK BSD Port project (http://openjdk.java.net/projects/bsd-port).

 At the time of writing, the petition had 1172 supporters. So if you're concerned, and believe this is the best way forward, show your support.
