« Java Method Overriding Is FUBAR Part 6 o... | Main | Managed PE File Types »
New Development Snapshot

I've implemented the JDK 7 method overriding behavior. So this should be the final snapshot before the 7.0 release candidate.

It's really a testament to the .NET method overriding model that I was able to easily implement all the weird JDK 7 behavior without resorting to any hacks. It's a simple matter of using MethodAttributes.NewSlot and TypeBuilder.DefineMethodOverride() in the right places.


  • Updated LICENSE and THIRD_PARTY_README to OpenJDK 7. Thanks to Martin for pointing out in the comments this was still missing.
  • Implemented JDK 7 method overriding behavior (minus the part 5 bug).

Binaries available here: ikvmbin-7.0.4328.zip

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)
