Subject Re: Contributions by Java programmers.

Thanks Daniel and Regis for the information about Apache Harmony.

I'll see if I can get the source code for the class library downloaded
today and I will begin looking at the java.util modules. Is there a
task list for the work that needs to be done in the class library or a
person that supervises this work?

Thank you again for the direction.
