Aarch64 Port Project

The website for the Aarch64 project is at this site: http://openjdk.java.net/projects/aarch64-port

The goal of this project is to integrate JDK9 so that can support HTML 5.  Currently, it can only support only HTML 4.  HTML 5 is the latest version of the HTML standard code for designing websites.  The java doc compiler can only accept HTML 4.  Any HTML 5 code that is inserted to the Java document may  cause a compiler risk.  Without the HTML 5 support, websites will not be up to standard.

I like to do this because I am good with Java.  Java is one of my majors.  My Java background will be able to solve this problem.  Java currently runs only HTML 4 (which is the default) but HTML 5 is the latest version of HTML.

The project that I would like to work with involves HTML 5.  Java doc does not support HTML 5, only HTML 4.  The goal of this project is to support either HTML 4/5 output.  A command line to Java doc will be added to support HTML 5.  Tests will be done to make sure that the HTML 5 code is valid, accessible, and can work on ANY number of browsers (i. e. If the user decides to switch from Firefox to another browser, example, Chrome, the HTML 5 code should still work.), and should not complain about any browser issues.  The link to the project will be found here: http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/224.

The new command line option will have the option to output the code in either HTML 4 or HTML 5.

My plan is to make sure to work on the project bit by bit.  I will meet with you every Tuesday and Thursday to track my process.  This way, I can manage my progress and get the project done faster.
