gcjwebplugin My main goal for Fedora Core 6 was the inclusion of gcjwebplugin, so I’m very pleased that it will in fact be included. Though it is not enabled by default, having it in the base distribution means that interested people can experiment with it and file bug reports, with the minimum of configuration. We’ve […]
Installation and Setup I installed Fedora Core 5 on my IBM ThinkPad T41 last night. I’ll go through a few minor annoyances before the good news: – NetworkManager wasn’t the default and I couldn’t find a way to enable it through the GUI (not that I should have to explicitly enable it anyway). I ended […]
Here’s my categorized list of goals for Fedora Core 5. java-gcj-compat GNU Crypto fix for Eclipse extssh support Casey Marshall has already committed a Diffie-Hellman JCE provider to GNU Classpath so this is just a matter of testing. import all JAWT fixes All the necessary patches are already in GNU Classpath and libgcj. Jessie merged […]
gcjappletviewer and gcjwebplugin More and more applets are working with gcjappletviewer and gcjwebplugin. Here’s a screenshot of gcjappletviewer HEAD + GNU Classpath HEAD: and one of gcjwebplugin HEAD + GNU Classpath HEAD: I’m getting through my AWT bug list. My next big chunk of work will be completing the transition to GTK 2.8 and Cairo, […]
Nostalgia: Caps Lock seems to be stuck on but Corel Office for Java basically works on GNU Classpath!
Here’s a screenshot of a JOGL demo running on Sun and libgcj: As you can see, it’s hard to tell which is which! Big Merge The screenshot represents several efforts coming together. First, the demo is running on natively-compiled GNU Classpath HEAD. Tom Tromey recently finished the Big Merge, making Classpath a sub-directory of gcc/libjava. […]
Sven de Marothy completely rewrote the image-handling sections of the GTK peers. This was one of the most convoluted areas in the peers and one of the buggiest. Now it is very clear and well-organized. Check out this screenshot: The top is JDK 1.4, centre is Classpath 0.14 and bottom is Classpath HEAD with Sven’s […]
I submitted my ecj option parsing patch to Eclipse. The patch went into Rawhide’s eclipse-ecj last night, which meant I was able to remove the last option munging stuff from java-gcj-compat. Behold: $ ls -l /usr/lib/jvm/java-gcj/bin jar -> /usr/bin/fastjar java -> /usr/bin/gij javac -> /usr/bin/ecj javadoc -> /usr/bin/gjdoc javah -> /usr/bin/gjnih rmic -> /usr/bin/grmic rmiregistry […]
I finished GNU Classpath’s BufferStrategy framework tonight: Currently there is only one unaccelerated backend that doesn’t actually do anything, but the framework for adding new backends is in place as well as all the necessary documentation. This patch adds the missing methods that Caolan mentioned in his blog. This is the last GCJ AWT vs. […]
The Fedora Core 4 Eclipse Bugzilla plugin now supports HTTPS sites: Getting this working involved quite a bit of testing and integration work. Casey fixed an x509 parsing bug, I merged GNU Classpath’s HTTPS handler into libgcj and I packaged Jessie’s SSL provider. Next step: merge Jessie into GNU Classpath.
