Subject Re: [general] creation of "jdktools"
Date Tue, 03 Oct 2006 19:02:24 GMT
+1 for creating a jdktools directory.  The dependency on the classlib
launcher should be relatively light if we go with a simple tools
launcher that rewrites the tool invocation into a generic launcher
invocation.  You may recall the idea was discussed a while ago.

So, for example,
  jdk/bin/javac -source 1.5 -J-Xmx200M  FooBar
is rewritten to
  jdk/jre/bin/java -cp jdk/lib/tools.jar;jdk/lib/ecj.jar -Xmx200M
org.apache.harmony.tools.javac.Main -source 1.5 FooBar

and so on.

Regards,
Tim
