Subject [classlib][jdwp] Use java 6 branch JDWP in java 5 builds?
Date Wed, 29 Jul 2009 11:20:27 GMT
Hi all,

After determining the cause of HARMONY-6246 [1] I discovered that it has 
already been fixed in the Java 6 branch, where I recently applied the 
contribution in HARMONY-6187 [2]. This got me thinking - there have been 
a number of bug fixes, performance improvements and portability changes 
made which were applied in that contribution and it is likely we will 
hit some of the same issues again in the Java 5 branch which have 
already been fixed in Java 6.

Is it possible for us just to use the updated Java 6 branch JDWP in our 
Java 5 builds as well? Not only would we benefit from the code 
improvements made there, we would have one unified code base for JDWP 
(and possibly the whole of jdktools?).

Any comments on this idea?
