Relation to JDK 7
As of 10/2010, JDK 7 includes method handles and invokedynamic, but not language support for invokedynamic.
- Released builds of this technology can be found here.
- The source repositories are with the rest of JDK7.
For example some of the JDK code is here and some of the JVM code is here.
- An advance copy of the javadoc (derived from the mlvm patch queue) is posted here.
- Here's an example of how to run a warm-and-breathing test for method handles in JDK 7.
Interesting tasks to do
- Document the process of pulling and building on various platforms.
- List relevant RFEs and subprojects. Link or enumerate architectural issues.
- Extract links and info. from messages and blog postings, especially via hotspot-dev@openjdk.
Who writes this wiki?
- We are using the Community Write pattern.
- There is no public write access, except for leaving page comments. You must be registered and logged in to leave comments.
- Please do add page comments when a page should answer your question but doesn't. (That means, potentially on any page.)
- The most effective page comments will include links to relevant email discussion threads, e.g., on the OpenJDK mlvm-dev list.
- Any member of the OpenJDK Hotspot Group or a related group should feel free to contribute.
- Committers, contributors, and users of the Da Vinci Machine Project code base are welcome to contribute.
- Write permissions are not automatic until and unless the DBs (Sun wiki vs. OpenJDK) get on speaking terms. If you think you should have write permission and don't ask jrose
