JMC Open Sourced!

This is going to be a short blog post, because it is past bedtime and I’m frankly pretty beat. Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who helped open source Java Mission Control in the relatively short period of time it was done in.

So a huge thank you to everyone on the Stockholm JMC team: Klara Ward, Ola Westin, Henrik Dafgård, Erik Greijus and Per Kroon. And to Dalibor Topic, who had the thankless job to go through all the source and built artifacts checking on, among other things, licenses and copyrights. Also thank you to Donald Smith for handling the internal license approval process, and Mark Reinhold for advice. Also, a big thank you to Guru, who is prepping to start building Oracle binary builds of the OpenJDK project. And to Iris who published the repos and set up the project on OpenJDK. And to everyone who I’ve forgotten to mention, since my brain is no longer really functioning at 2 a.m. You guys rock!

The repositories are available here:

  • The jmc repo contains the source, which is buildable using Maven.
    Everything you need to know about building JMC is in the README.txt
    Please read it first, thoroughly, before asking questions.
  • The jmc-graphics repo contains artwork and graphic files, like splash screens and icons.

We also have a slack at

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!

Kind regards,

  1. Awesome! Congratulations to all the team!

    I’m wondering if the JMC core jars would be eventually distributed on maven central.

  2. The slack only seem to be available for Oracle and RedHat employees, it would be nice if it could be open to anyone interested 🙂 I would have a few questions to ask there 🙂

    Ah, sorry about that. That said, anyone who is a member can invite people.

    Yes. Snapshot builds should be available on Sonatype soon.
