New Development Snapshot

I've been doing some cleanup and refactoring and in the process removed some limitations and fixed a bunch of corner cases.

Changes:

  • Updated version to 7.1.4366.0.
  • Fixed Class.getDeclaredClasses() to throw correct exception when one on the inner classes cannot be loaded.
  • Removed class name length limitation.
  • Split ikvmc compilation into three passes to support classes that extend a class nested inside itself.
  • Include copyright and metadata in IKVM.OpenJDK.Tools.dll. Part of patch #3458997.
  • Added AssemblyInformationalVersionAttribute to OpenJDK assemblies (to set the "Product Version"). Part of patch #3458997.
  • When casting arguments we should use the actual method parameter types, instead of the call site types (which can differ in the case of unloadable types (with crazy class loader trickery)).
  • Unloadable types can't violate loader constraints.
  • Made override stub generation more consistent.
  • Generate override stub for miranda method, when necessary.
  • Fixed ikvcm to not crash when ikvmc -resource: or -externalresource: option doesn't contain an = sign.
  • Fixed unloadable corner case (that can only be generated by playing weird class loader tricks).
  • Verifier bug fix. Removed incorrect check for uninitialized objects on backward branch.
  • IKVM.Reflection: Support setting an invalid culture using AssemblyBuilder.__SetAssemblyCulture().
  • IKVM.Reflection: AssemblyCultureAttribute should not influence the LCID of the version info resource.
  • IKVM.Reflection: Removed static Create() from __StandAloneMethodSig and added Universe.MakeStandAloneMethodSig().

I've just recently learned about this project and I'm really amazed about the amount of work and effort that went into IKVM.NET

I want to say big THANK YOU to you and best of luck continuing this great work! :)

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)
