Subject [classlib] Contribution of native code to port to additional platforms in HARMONY-6311
Date Mon, 17 Aug 2009 16:30:53 GMT
Hi all,

I'm pleased to announce the contribution of class library native code 
which enables us to port to some additional platforms not currently 
supported. This contribution includes:
 - A chunk of additional code to get Harmony class library natives to 
build and execute with correct behaviour on zOS (minus the awt and 
imageio modules). Most of this code is in the new hya2e library, which 
deals with converting arguments from ascii to ebcdic and vice-versa. 
This library is only built on zOS.
 - New memory mapping and shared library functions for zOS.
 - Some small additional changes to some math functions for big 
endian/64bit platforms.

I have attached the patch to HARMONY-6311 for the changes. Ill start a 
vote on the contribution in the next few days when everyone has had a 
chance to take a look.
