Java SE Development Kit (JDK) is the next Java platform by Sun Microsystems. JDK7 and JDK6 source snapshots under the JRL license are now available through subversion repository. jdk.researcher or jdk.contributor role for JDK project is required to access the repository.
This is yet another way to access JDK sources. It has a number of advantages over the jar files we provide for the source shapshots. Some of them are: all the JDK7 snapshots will be available there (only a few last snapshots are available as JAR files). With subversion one can get subset of the workspace (one gets whole workspace in a JAR file). Workspace update is as simple as svn update. The repository is browsable. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
