Subject [jira] Commented: (HARMONY-5556) [drlvm][class_support] make icu4c dependency optional to reduce bundle size
Date Thu, 06 Mar 2008 13:26:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-5556?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12575694#action_12575694
] 

Mark Hindess commented on HARMONY-5556:
---------------------------------------

On Linux, it may be possible to replace the use of the ICU4C  u_isalpha and u_isalnum functions
with the "standard" iswalpha and iswalnum instead?  However, my brief testing shows that these
give different answers.  As a fallback option though they may be good enough?

>             Project: Harmony
>          Issue Type: Improvement

> There is certain interest in application bundling with minimal size/working set; DRLVM
can easily contribute here.
> In particular, the most part in drlvm binaries take icu4c modules (~10 of 15 mb). Yet
the main utilization of icu4c is highly optional, support for unicode identifiers in classfiles.

> So the idea is, do not link to icu4c directly but bind it in runtime as optional feature.
