Newbie... please be gentle ;)

In relation to the *VM* how are these used and are they used at all, if so 
why.

BCEL?
(Probably introspection)

ICU?
(Unicode... its too big to be good)

XALAN
(please no)

XERCES
(please no)

Yoko
(Corba... I hope not)


Its almost perfect, the only area that naturally needs work is that the VM 
does not distinguish between a user using the program and a programmer
that wants extra functionality... So Debuggers profiling tooling has to be 
made all optional and dynamic links

Two JIT compilers ... beautiful, the OPT compiler must be optional or late 
loading, its perfect, if they can be separated?

Where are fonts actually used, not directly in the VM I hope, ie its AWT and 
Swing classes, that *once loaded use them*, is that right?
Something like classloader loads up a Swing class, it draws, this is a 
method call outside VM logic and links straight out to a system dll?
Where is the native side of AWT and SWING living... in harmonyvm.dll?

Thanks... Harmony is great...
