Daniel Lydick updated HARMONY-6:

    Comment: was deleted


I saw this interesting comment posted against
my BootJVM followed immediately by your
watchful removal.  Thanks for taking care of this
little number.

I thought I would take a few moments to let you
know that I do still exist and one of these days I
do wish to get back into the fray.  About a year
and a half ago, my father fell and broke his hip
and then two months later he died of complications.
As my mother has been gone for a number of years,
my sister and I finished up all the details of his estate
and the final breakup of his household last month.

In the mean time, I also finished up my graduate
work in ancient languages (not ALGOL or COBOL
but classical Aramaic, Hebrew, and Greek).  This
season has been more challenging that I thought
because I also have been looking for work since
last summer.  I have done some piecework recently
but not anything really that substantial.  Do you know
of anyone in your sphere of influence who could use
the services of a guy like me?  I am a hard-core Unix
kernel and real-time/embedded guy with plenty of
applications and DB work as well as, of course,
solid Java internals and performance experience.

Thanks again for deleting that superfluous comment
from the JIRA.

Best regards,

Dan Lydick

> Dear friends at ASF,
> Here is a contribution to the Harmony project of a basic Java
> Virtual Machine entitled the "Apache Harmony Bootstrap JVM."
> It is my hope that this implementation of a JVM will spur
> significant discussions to "bootstrap" the core architectural
> component designs for the Harmony JVM component(s), whether
> or not this particular code is used in any of them.  I also
> hope it will provide a substantial learning experience for
> those who are not acquainted with the way a JVM does or could
> work.  Finally, I hope that this program might serve as a
> "bootstrap" and for a runtime framework from which to start
> up what becomes the program code of one or more JVM's that
> the Harmony project ultimately produces.  That is, if it has
> any functions that would help that process along, I would
> hope that at least part of the code might be usable in the
> final result(s).  If any of these goals are met, then my
> purpose is accomplished.  In any event, here 'tis.  Enjoy.

> Please see the file 'harmony/bootJVM/README' to learn what
> is contained in this program, including the design goals
> and rationale for its implementation.
> Two distribution files are included.  The first contains the
> entire documentation suite in ready-to-read form.  The second
> is the source distribution that also contains this same
> documentation, but which is _not_ readily accessible until
> after configuration.
> Both are provided as .tar.gz files.  To read the documentation in
> either Unix man, TeX, or as HTML, follow portions of this procedure.
> A 'harmony/bootJVM-0.0.0' directory will be created:
>     $ cat bootJVM-doc-0.0.0.tar.gz | gunzip | tar xf -
> man:
>     $ setenv MANPATH=`pwd`/harmony/bootJVM-0.0.0/doc.ORIG/man
>     $ man -s 3 jvm.c
>     $ man -s 3 README
>     $ man -s 3 INSTALL
> TeX:
>     $ info `pwd`/harmony/bootJVM-0.0.0/doc.ORIG/latex/index.tex
>     $ # Web browser entry: `pwd`/harmony/bootJVM-0.0.0/doc.ORIG/html/index.html
> The documentation is also found in XML and RTF format in the 'doc.ORIG'
> directory.
> To unpack the source distribution, follow this procedure.  A 'harmony-bootJVM'
> directory will be created:
>     $ cat bootJVM-src-0.0.0.tar.gz | gunzip | tar xf -
>     $ cd harmony/bootJVM
>     $ more INSTALL
> Follow the installation procedure from there.
