IKVM.OpenJDK.Core must run on .net 3.5.
if only .net 2.0, we received the below exception:
Exception: System.MissingMethodException

Can .net framework be supported since 2.0?

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)
