Subject Re: [drlvm][verifier] Please review HARMONY-3862

Nina,

It was nothing was to be sorry about. :-) I was just trying to
understand your concern myself. I believe we should pay attention to
the difference if it prevents any applications from running. There are
too much arbitrary differences to pay attention to each of them.

For example, Sun's verifier is shipped in a form of DLL which allows
BEA to use it . We don't ship our verifier in a form of DLL. This is a
difference, but we don't file JIRA issue about it.

>From the other side behavior difference might be serious if it impacts
something seriously. If you think this incompatibility has a serious
impact, just indicate the impact and the incompatibility will be
addressed.

Thanks.
