OpenJDK port: midterm report

Blog post by hamish on Sat, 2012-07-14 23:47

After my quarter term report I worked on various bugs in the AWT port reported by testers, such as keyboard input problems. I also began reading up on the media kit in preparation for the next part of my project: the jsound port. This will bring audio and MIDI functionality to the OpenJDK port. Over the last week I made a start on the implementation for PCM input/output.

Additionally, since my last report I was given commit access at the official Haiku port project over at the OpenJDK project: This is great as it will provide a more central place for collaboration and possibly attract more developers to the project. I have started merging my work into the repositories there.

Finally, as promised last time, I have built a new set of binaries with the latest revision of the AWT port, which is in quite a stable state: The archive is about 160MB extracted. Any bug reports are much appreciated and should be sent to me via my contact form on this site.
