    How to vote, add to watch list or comment on a bug in the Java Bug Database

    851191
      Sorry, could not fine a better place where to post this question.

      I'm successfully logged-in but I cannot add a particular bug to my bug watch list, comment on it or vote for it (ok, here I may have already used all my 3 votes but I could also not find where to check this in my profile).

      I am particular interested in this bug #4787931:
      http://bugs.sun.com/view_bug.do?bug_id=4787931

      Thanks for you support!

          The Java bug DB was a Sun-time idea. Oracle hasn't put much effort into it since the merger:
          - the performance has been horrible, see e.g. {thread:id=2173553}), and it is not clear whether they intend to keep maintaining it as such (open, vote-able,...)
          - the "recently closed bugs" page (http://bugs.sun.com/recently_closed.do) seems out of date
          - At the time of this writing, I cannot even find a link to log on it from the welcome page http://bugs.sun.com/ :(

          Until Oracle openly declares that they will maintain this resource, I wouldn't put much hope nor effort into it...

          Much luck,

          J.
