OpenJDK 6 b18 Implements New Component Delivery Model

Joe Darcy has announced OpenJDK 6: b18 Source Bundle Published. This is the first release that implements the new delivery model for JAXP and JAX-WS, which Joe wrote about a couple weeks ago and last August. In his August entry, Joe explained the problem that was driving the switch to a new component delivery model: The JDK includes many logically distinct sets of APIs. Some of the APIs naturally live in the JDK and evolve at the pace of the JDK; other APIs are effectively maintained externally, but are also shipped as part of the public API provided by the JDK. Two APIs in the latter camp are jaxp and jax-ws, both of which natively live in the GlassFish project. Currently, those components are maintained under separate version control as part of OpenJDK in the jaxp and jax-ws repositories, respectively. Code in these components is periodically synced with changes from the upstream masters, with some nontrivial overhead. With the new delivery model, implemented starting with OpenJDK 6 b18: the JDK build no longer tracks a copy of the jaxp and jax-ws sources under version control. Instead source bundles from the upstream teams are used. The file in the jaxp repository contains the default URL from which the source bundle is downloaded as well as the expected checksum for that file. The analogous setup is used for jax-ws in its repository. This doesn't mean that you cannot use alternate J...
