Subject [drlvm] Enabling vmmagic support on 64bit OS - need package update to the latest version
Date Mon, 05 Feb 2007 11:40:58 GMT
I'm working on EM64T vmmagics enabling and faced the problem that JAR we use
contains files that are not ready for 64-bit OS support.
For example there is no way to create Address from long. This means that
there is no way to create meaningful Address instance on 64bit platfrom at
I checked the latest JikesRVM source and found all 64-bits methods I need.

Porting magics to 64bit platform and enabling helpers inlining in all modes
we have is not a task we can postpone for a months, so we have to do
something to get the methods we need in our codebase.

I see 2 solutions:
1) Robin can update mmtk jar we use to the latest version. This is the best
choice because he is one of the authors.
2) I can do it by myself: get the JikesRVM copy and update our JAR.

What will we do?
