Subject Re: [drlvm] DRLVM, jre/bin/default and launcher
Date Fri, 01 Sep 2006 13:30:05 GMT
Ok, but can we wack off the biggest problem first, namely that DRLVM 
doesn't work when it's artifacts (dll's, so's) are in a subdirectory of 
jre/bin?

TO me, that's our biggest problem.  Subtle cleanup issues are also 
important, but not as much at this point.
