Subject Re: [jdktools][JDWP]using portlib to support JDWP transport/agent?
Date Mon, 25 Feb 2008 11:23:33 GMT
+1 to simplifying and unifying the jdwp source by using portlib. I agree 
with further posts that if there is missing functionality from portlib 
that is required, it should be added to portlib where possible rather 
than adding platform specific source to jdwp.
