Harmony Eclipse plugin cant handle multiple kernel jars
-------------------------------------------------------

         Key: HARMONY-300
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-300
     Project: Harmony
        Type: Improvement

  Components: Classlib  
    Reporter: Oliver Deakin


The current HarmonyVM Eclipse plugin can only be used with a JRE containing a single kernel
jar. Currently the kernel is in the process of being split into luni-kernel.jar and security-kernel.jar,
and as Tim alludes to in [1] a new IBM VME will be made available soon that has a split kernel.
However, the Eclipse plugin will not understand this layout as it expects a single kernel.jar.
This bug proposes to fix this by extending the properties listed in the VME <vm>.properties
file from:

   bootclasspath.kernel=%LAUNCHER_HOME%/default/kernel.jar
   bootclasspath.source.kernel=%LAUNCHER_HOME%/default/kernel-src.jar
   bootclasspath.source.packageroot.kernel=/

to:

   bootclasspath.kernel.1=%LAUNCHER_HOME%/default/luni-kernel.jar
   bootclasspath.kernel.source.1=%LAUNCHER_HOME%/default/luni-kernel-src.jar
   bootclasspath.kernel.source.packageroot.1=/

   bootclasspath.kernel.2=%LAUNCHER_HOME%/default/security-kernel.jar
   bootclasspath.kernel.source.2=%LAUNCHER_HOME%/default/security-kernel-src.jar
   bootclasspath.kernel.source.packageroot.2=/

which is similar in form to the properties in bootclasspath.properties. Along with this change
to the VME, the HarmonyVM plugin requires changes to understand these new properties. I will
attach a patch for the required changes.
Note: I will keep the plugin backward compatible. i.e. it will work with both the above property
sets.
