Compiling my own JDK! | Modern Java | Head Crashing Informatics 34

I am sick of several #performance flaws of the #JRE, so I downloaded the source code of #OpenJDK 17 and compiled my own custom #Java runtime! If you also want to do that, just follow the instructions in this video and start hacking on OpenJDK!

Please share this video with all Java programmers you do know, so everybody will be able to contribute funny hacks and helpful to OpenJDK!

Don’t miss my next conference talks: * September 2021: Java Forum Stuttgart * October 2021: EclipseCon (

Stay safe and… Party On!
