Subject Re: [arch] Modular JVM component diagram
Date Fri, 19 Aug 2005 07:15:40 GMT

Thanks, great overview, Ricardo! In regards to APR as a candidate for 
the OS Abstraction Layer (OAL) project:

I like the APR idea, but still would like to evaluate how feasible it 
will be to port whatever we chose as the OAL to various embedded 
platforms, in particular ARM, PowerPC and MIPS.

What are there any good alternative projects to APR? All portable 
embedded apps I have worked on either did not have the porting 
requirement or rolled their own porting layer, always around Berkely 
sockets, sometime around POSIX threading.

As I do not have any APR porting experience on my own I tried to use 
google to get an estimate of what has been done in regards to APR ports 
for these three:
The number of hits for "Apache Portable Runtime", "ARM", "PowerPC" and 
"MIPS" produced quite a few hits on Google. (647, 645 and 468, 
So, rather encouraging, but if someone could post his own experience on 
porting APR this would certainly be more helpful than my Google-guessing.
