New Snapshot

A couple of fixes and performance enhancements for static synchronized and static native methods.


  • Fixed ikvmc so it no longer throws an exception if no output filename is specified (or implied).
  • Fixed monitorenter instruction and synchronized methods to not throw InterruptedException.
  • Added [DebuggerStepThroughAttribute] to all methods in ByteCodeHelper that didn't have it yet.
  • Added class object caching for static synchronized and native methods.
  • Fixed Thread.stop() so that it works on suspended threads.
  • Implemented a few more random awt peer methods.
  • Removed gnu.classpath.RawData mapping from map.xml.
  • Changed ikvm.exe setting of gnu.classpath.home and java.class.path properties so that they end up in the default system properties.
  • Added IKVM.Runtime.Startup.EnterMainThread() and ExitMainThread() methods (and changed ikvm.exe) to encapsulate the setup and tear-down of the main thread.
  • Fixed JNIEnv.MonitorEnter to use ByteCodeHelper.monitorenter.
  • Fixed compiler bug that caused invoking CharSequence methods to generate a ClassCastException.
  • Changed ikvmc main stub method to call Startup.EnterMainThread() and ExitMainThread() and to pass unhandled exceptions to ThreadGroup.uncaughtException().
  • Fixed JNI method invocation to not wrap exceptions in java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException.
  • Fixed support for synchronized native methods.
  • Fixed bug in JNI proxy generator (only used when -Xsave option is specified).
  • Named the WaitShutdownHook and SaveAssemblyShutdownHook threads in starter.cs.
  • Fixed JNIEnv.RegisterNatives when JNI proxy generator is used.
  • Fixed Double.parseDouble to parse +Infinity correctly.

I apologize for the lameness of this, but the comment spam was driving me nuts. In order to be able to post a comment, you need to answer a simple question. Hopefully this question is easy enough not to annoy serious commenters, but hard enough to keep the spammers away.

Anti-Spam Question: What method on java.lang.System returns an object's original hashcode (i.e. the one that would be returned by java.lang.Object.hashCode() if it wasn't overridden)? (case is significant)
