Subject RE: [prayer] to the Eclipse Foundation
Date Thu, 04 May 2006 23:31:35 GMT
I may be a bit naïve in regards to such things, but would it be possible to
create our own stripped down compiler package? My thought is that we could
just checkout the appropriate JDT code from Eclipse's CVS server, build only
the classes necessary and create a wee JAR.

I'm guessing that the big concern would be legal ramifications, but I'm not
familiar enough with the various licenses to know.

Obviously this puts Harmony in the business of managing more stuff, but it
might help things out in the short-term. Perhaps such an example could be
posted to Eclipse with a bug to help the cause.
