The goal of this project is to provide a full-featured and certifiable Linux/s390x port of OpenJDK in the main OpenJDK development branch.
IBM is maintaining the port in jdk/jdk, jdk17, jdk11u and further new releases.
Contributions to the port are always welcome. We maintain some issues in the OpenJDK Jira, feel free to address any of these:
