Subject Re: [drlvm][verifier] what is the right place for verifier extension?
Date Thu, 15 Nov 2007 22:53:42 GMT
I thought of build-time copying of the rest of verifier and building a
standalone dll...

That would make our JRE smaller...

It would be good to implement somethig similar in H-4689 as well

Thanks,
Mikhail
