This session is focused on AdoptOpenJDK’s Continuous Integration Build and Test Pipeline. We show you how the pieces fit together, the lessons we learned from implementing them, and our aspirations for the future.

  • Swaths of testing
  • Certification
  • Deploying binaries using and the API gateway
