OpenJDK Source Snapshots: prebuilt tarballs of OpenJDK source code

These tarballs are automatically generated from the OpenJDK repositories at These are source tarballs, without Mercurial metadata. If you want to check out Mercurial repository and/or explore code in repository branches, consider checking out workspaces tarballs.

Archive names are derived from the names of the tracked repositories. Snapshots are rotated daily, using the source-snapshot-pack-*.sh below. While daily rotation would include the latest work in most repositories, it could miss the work done thorought the last day in the active ones.

Builds require a few build dependencies. Configure script usually tells what dependencies to install on the concrete OS flavor. On recent Debian/Ubuntu, this should be enough:

$ sudo apt install build-essential libx11-dev libxext-dev libxrender-dev \
                   libxtst-dev libxt-dev libcups2-dev libfontconfig1-dev \
                   libasound2-dev libfreetype6-dev libpng-dev

Example to checkout and build JDK 8u or derivatives:

$ curl | tar xJf -; \
  cd jdk8u-jdk8u; \
  sh ./configure \
  make images; \
  build/linux-x86_64-normal-server-release/images/j2sdk-image/bin/java -version

Example to checkout and build JDK 10+ or derivatives:

$ curl | tar xJf -; \
  cd jdk-jdk; \
  sh ./configure \
  make images; \
  build/linux-x86_64-normal-server-release/images/jdk/image/bin/java -version

Depending on your environment, "configure" might require a few options that deal with compiler warnings on too old or too new toolchains. The #YOLO option is most probably --disable-warnings-as-errors or --with-extra-cflags=-Wno-error.
