I wrote a small F.A.Q. that hopefully answers most questions people have without them having to go read through the entire history of the project.

It lives here.

The line in the faq which says that ik.vm.jni.dll
is optional is not quite true, since sources files
in ik.vm.net reference some types from it (IJniHack etc).

True. It's trivial to create a stub IK.VM.JNI.DLL though. I'll probably do that at some point.

Does this mean, that I can use Suns JDK1.4-Java-Classes instead of GNU-Classpath in the future?

No, because Sun's classes probably depend on VM internals at some of the lower levels. At the very least, you'll have to reimplement a whole bunch of native methods. In short: Not recommended.

Can I pass -classpath to ikvm yet?

No, but you can use:
ikvm -Djava.class.path=<classpath> <class>

I somehow managed to forget to implement the -classpath switch.

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)
