Subject Re: [drlvm] Using JNI methods in VM's components.
Date Fri, 20 Oct 2006 09:45:07 GMT

You certainly can. Just add System.loadLibrary(<component name>) to the
static initialization block of a class, which declares that method and call
<clinit> for such class.

Component: gcv5.dll
Class, implementing fast path magics: GCv5Magics
Class source:
class GCv5Magics {
    static {
    // ... the rest of magics for GC v5


P.S. <clinit> is not called for such classes now, but magics are all
something new to add to VM.
