Subject Re: [tools] jretools
Date Tue, 07 Oct 2008 13:08:20 GMT
The build works for me, but I would expect to see some of the
executables duplicated in both jre/bin and jdk/bin (java, javaw,
keytool, policytool unpack200) and on Windows I only see them in one
folder or the other.  I'm just building jdktools and not the whole
federated build in case that makes a difference.

I also prefer two jars.
