New Snapshot

A couple of fixes and a clean up of the JNI code. The Managed C++ JNI provider used some clever tricks and when I ported them to C# they turned into ugly hacks, so I removed them. More on that in a future entry.


  • Changed VMAccessController and VMClassLoader to use .NET thread local storage instead of a Java ThreadLocal to reduce initialization order dependencies.
  • Added -XXsave flag to ikvm.exe to save debug image of single threaded apps that don't call System.exit().
  • Added -apartment:[sta|mta|none] flag to ikvmc (default is to apply the STAThreadAttribute to main).
  • Added Win64 support to ikvm-native.
  • Fixed class file parser to properly resize the instruction array. Previously, the compiler got confused when emitting debugging information.
  • Added code to save the assembly used for non-virtual reflective method invocations when -Xsave is used.
  • Introduced JNI type name aliases in JniInterface to make the code more readable.
  • Implemented JNI functions: EnsureLocalCapacity, PushLocalFrame, PopLocalFrame, NewWeakGlobalRef and DeleteWeakGlobalRef.
  • Fixed Debug.Assert in GhostMethodWrapper (MemberWrapper.cs).
  • Fixed JniProxyBuilder to emit ldtoken and pass it as an argument to the real JNI method.
  • Improved error handling in gnu.java.io.EncodingManager.
  • Fixed support for setting the java.library.path property on the ikvm.exe command line.
  • Fixed default java.library.path on Windows.
  • Added workaround for Mono 1.0 bug in Marshal.AllocHGlobal.
  • Fixed delegate reflection bug that caused ikvmstub not to emit the nested Method interface for delegates.
  • Added resource name mangling to make ILDASM/ILASM roundtripping work.

New snapshots: just the binaries and source plus binaries.

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)
