[talk] JVM Questions

Hi All,

A Java question, for my own sanity.

Some folks I know are convinced that Oracle JDK and OpenJDK are identical.
(OpenJDK is our Production standard for many reasons, yet follks keep 
using to Oracle JDK for dev...)


Do folks here know anywhere I can find some practical code examples 
which expose the nasty bugs which can be encountered?

Do folks here have any such examples, perhaps from your fine Java 
colleagues? (unsigned/signed int mania differences in particular)?

In the vast and disparate world of Java, is there another good place 
where I should ask to find examples of this stuff?

I'm dying to get my hands on some code to demonstrate the JVM 
implementation differences, so we can quit focusing on high level 
language spec discussions.
