Microsoft has climbed aboard the OpenJDK project to help with the development of open source Java. In a message posted on an OpenJDK mailing list, Microsoft’s Bruno Borges, principal product manager for Java at the company, said Microsoft’s team initially will be working on smaller bug fixes and back ports so it can learn how to be “good citizens” within OpenJDK. Microsoft and subsidiaries are “heavily dependent” on Java in many aspects, Borges said. For one, Java runtimes are offered in Microsoft’s Azure cloud.
