Thanks to Zoltan Varga for trying to compile IK.VM.NET on Mono. He pointed out some problems:

  • I used the undocument C# __arglist keyword in my multianewarray helper method, but since Mono's C# compiler doesn't support that and it isn't part of the standard, I reworked that to get rid of the __arglist construct.
  • zlib.dll is a part managed part unmanaged dll, and thus it will not run on Mono. I removed the zlib.dll dependency and I've changed ikvmc and netexp to use java.util.zip.* from classpath.dll.

This change has introduced a circular dependency: ikvmc is used to generate classpath.dll, but it also depends on it.

Other changes:

  • started on NAnt build files, to support building the project outside of Visual Studio .NET, and (in the future) hopefully without platform dependencies.
  • All Classpath's native methods are now (at least partially) implemented, except for java.nio.*

Updated the binaries and source snaphots.

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)
