>                 Key: HARMONY-1940
>                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-1940
>             Project: Harmony
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Classlib
>            Reporter: Alex Blewitt
>         Assigned To: Paulex Yang
>            Priority: Trivial
>         Attachments: pack200-java-util-jar.patch, pack200-pack200adapter.patch
> This adds functionality to hook the pack200 factory to the harmony implementation such
that Pack200.newPacker() and Pack200.newUnpacker() return instances of the harmony implementation.
> Note that I have discovered a bug in the standard Sun implementation in that when the
system property is specified as the harmony implementation, the packer fails to find the class
due to not being on the system boot classpath. I feel that the use of the ClassLoader.getSystemClassLoader()
may result in the same situation for harmony, especially if the harmony code is shipped in
a different Jar. The only solution for the Sun VM to use the harmony implementation is to
put it on the system classpath.
> I'm largely recording that as an issue here since it may affect our s in the same way
in the future.
