Java News from Thursday, November 29, 2007 has published my latest article: The Open Road: Building the JDK. This article follows my experience trying to build the OpenJDK on Linux. Possibly I'll try Windows in the future. This is planned to be the first in a series of articles focusing on the OpenJDK and Java 7. If they're any topics you'd especially like to see covered in the future, holler. Likely, the next article in the series will introduce one of the new APIs proposed for Java 7.
