This issue will track work in adding support for OpenJDK as a class library provider for Jikes RVM.
- code is on the branch RVM-549-OpenJDK in the main repository
- there is still a lot of work to be done before the branch can be merged: not even pre-commit passes.
- A suitable next step would be to rewrite the build file to download and build OpenJDK 6 (or possibly IcedTea 6 because OpenJDK 6 has no security support anymore) rather than downloading binaries. An investigation is necessary to determine whether building OpenJDK/IcedTea 6 from source is viable for Mac OS.
