JDK Community Starter Bug List

This is a list of bugs that Java SE engineers have identified as great candidates for developers who are looking to get started at fixing bugs in the JDK.
Please check the instruction note on how to claim a starter bug.

Note: There is no guarantee that any bug fix will be put into JDK 6 or 7, even if it is perfect. All fixes received will be evaluated on their impact to the codebase at the time they are received. For this reason, it will be become increasingly difficult to add bug fixes and new enhancements (especially API changes) as we get closer to JDK's ship date. Fixes that are not included in JDK 6 are still valuable and will be considered for inclusion in JDK 6 update releases and in JDK 7.
