Subject Re: [jira] Created: (HARMONY-2201) [classlib][luni] Add creation of stub jvm.dll to luni module
Date Fri, 17 Nov 2006 13:20:02 GMT
My thinking is that we should support the convention, but we're also 
trying to create another convention with VMI.

Would the vmi.dll be usable by other implementors?
