OpenJDK explorations

Found some info regarding the OpenJDK JVM interface:

I also once started to install Linux Ubuntu on my VMWare, and tried to build OpenJDK 8, to see what was needed to incorporate it into Jamiga. I found some instructions here on hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk8

Still here, still

Hi all,
I've been a bit busy lately, but I finally have some time to continue development on jamiga. I'm continuing on networking, and solving issues I find surrounding that. Right now that means stuff with the DirectByteBuffer implementation. I'm hoping to have something screenshottable soon (don't get to excited, it'll only be console stuff, no GUI).

Other than that, I'm still loooking at OpenJDK, and JamVM to some extent. With Java 7 being released, Java 8 due in 2012, and GNU Classpath hopelessly untouched since 2009 with barely Java 5 functionalty, openJDK, really seems what everyone is aiming for. Thus, the network parts tries to adhere to the OpenJDK style of implementing the class library, making the network parts relatively easy converted to another VM using OpenJDK, such as JamVM.
