Sun has been opening the Java platform for some time now. With the Mustang release, the source code was made available and a process was provided for submitting bug fixes. About this same time we discovered an issue with the LDAP code that left connections open certain circumstances. Since I had access to the source code from Sun, I was able to find the problem and send a correction. For this I was "honored" at JavaOne in 2006 as a JDK Community Star for contributing a bug fix to Java. Click on Matthew Smith.
