Subject Re: Supporting working on a single module?
Date Wed, 17 May 2006 12:36:08 GMT
Ive just opened HARMONY-469 which contains a patch to rearrange the 
current layout
of the deploy directory into:


This is a preliminary step to reorganising the native code and using the 
deploy directory
as an HDK (as discussed else where in this topic [1] & [2]).

If/when this patch is accepted and applied, there are a couple of issues 
that may affect
us that I thought would be worth bringing to general attention:

1) The IBM VME is laid out to unpack with the same directory structure as
the current deploy directory i.e. it overlays into 
deploy/jre/bin/default. If there is a new
jdk directory added into the structure, then the VME will no longer 
unpack into the
right place, which might confuse new developers hoping to try out our 
code. I am
currently working on making a VME which reflects the new layout 
available, and I will
send a note to the list once it is ready (this would be after 
HARMONY-469 was
Developers that are already using a VME in their workspace will simply 
need to move
the deploy/jre/bin/default directory to deploy/jdk/jre/bin/default.

2) I was wondering how this change will affect the DRLVM? I notice from 
the VM locally that it produces a deploy\jre\bin structure, so I imagine 
that some
small path changes to build scripts would be necessary (similar to the 
changes I
had to make in HARMONY-469).
