Subject [Harmony Wiki] Update of "Google Summer Of Code 2009 Projects Proposals" by AndrewCornwall

Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Harmony Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by AndrewCornwall:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  || '''Title''' || '''Extend VMTT bytecode assembler''' ||
  || '''ASF Project''' || Apache Harmony http://harmony.apache.org ||
  || '''Keywords''' || Java, tools, vmtt||
- || '''Description''' || VMTT is a bytecode assembler used to test the Apache Harmony VM
and class library. For this task, you would extend it in several ways: adding real labels
(so one could write jsr loop instead of jsr -5), adding flexibility to emit more bad classes
(specifying padding for tableswitch/lookupswitch, allowing double/long constant pool entries
without a subsequent constant pool entry), allowing for mixed asm and bin in methods, allowing
for insertion of binary data in other places (such as the constant pool), and fixing existing
defects. If legal approval is available, you might extend VMTT to read the JASM format as
well.||
