Title: Project to make openJDK LSB compliable
Student: Ratna Raj Singh
Mentor: No mentor assigned
Possible Mentors: None
OpenJDK is one of the most used Java platform and Java is great platform
for application development. The need of OpenJDK in LSB is thus
requisite and that to without bugs. The project is to make OpenJDK
included in the LSB without any compatibility issues.
A number of patches will be done in the JDK source for bugs like XML
syntax problems,compilation in some distros ,etc.
Name : Ratna Raj Singh
Current Enrollment : Indian Institute of Technologu Kanpur, Kanpur, India
Overview : I'm programming since age 14 and know little GW-BASIC (my
first language, in school)
a good experience with C++ , about 3years or so(Turbo

Experience with programming : As earlier I've been coding frm past 3 n a
half year and have anexperience of writing compact coded
programs and have made a
run-time database management application (Storing information of stars
and having some search and count in that datastructure), I've also made
a GUI based file storage program.
I was not involved in any opensource development earlier.
My goals are to to learning and developing skills ant get more
experienced with programming and software development. Further I want to
hlep the Open Source Community to develop more and produce more user
friendly and compatiable applications.
I'm suited to do this because of my willingness and determination to
know more and do more.
