Sorry, I don't understand the question.

By default, our javac will run on the Harmony JRE and compile against
the Harmony class libraries (i.e. no dependencies on the RI at all).

However, it is possible against any other class libraries, including the
RI (e.g. javac -cp rt.jar Foo.java).  The compiler is still running on
the Harmony JRE.

Does that answer your question?
