Support for BrandWeg as a class library

    Details

      Description

      BrandWeg is a port of OpenJDK code to the Classpath interface, using it will allow us to plug holes in our class library like the missing java.util.Scanner. Here is Andrew Hughes' announcement from the Classpath mailing list:

      Hi everyone,

      We've just moved BrandWeg so that it is now housed alongside IcedTea
      and IcePick on the Mercurial server. You can obtain a copy using:

      hg clone http://icedtea.classpath.org/hg/brandweg

      A reminder or for those who don't yet know: The BrandWeg project is a
      fusion point for two Free Software projects: GNU Classpath and
      OpenJDK. It mirrors the existing IcedTea project in providing a hybrid
      of the two. However, whereas IcedTea approaches this from the
      perspective of building and patching OpenJDK, we instead take GNU
      Classpath as the baseline and bring in elements of the OpenJDK to fill
      the remaining holes.

      Patches welcomed
      – Andrew

              BrandWeg seems to be dead upstream. Class library work should focus on the new OpenJDK port or on GNU Classpath.
