Subject [classlib] Moving to ICU4J 3.8
Date Thu, 25 Oct 2007 10:35:11 GMT
Since there have been no objections, I will commit my changes to move 
classlib to icu4j 3.8.

I will leave the icu4c and icu4jni 3.4.4 libraries intact for the time 
being, as they are currently needed by both drlvm and J9. Even though 
these libraries will still be copied into the jre/bin directory by the 
classlib build process, they will no longer be used by classlib. I will 
be checking in an updated version of icu4j 3.8 jar from a recent 
checkout of the icu code - this is because there are some bug fixes we 
require that are not in the current 3.8 release. Once 3.8.1 is made 
available, I will alter the build process to automatically download that 

I am also removing the text module native code, as this is no longer needed.

It would be great if everyone could take a look and test these changes, 
especially with drlvm and the federated build. Please let me know if 
there is anything I have overlooked or if there are any other issues.
