Subject Re: Early Access builds for JDK 9 b53 and JDK 8u60 b05 are available on java.net
Date Wed, 11 Mar 2015 17:50:27 GMT
Is anyone going to try installing these on the Jenkins machines? 

Given the changes in JDK9 it's probably best for people to install locally and get the builds
& tests working before delegating to Jenkins
