      Description

      Apache Harmony's build simplifies building the class library for Windows, building Jikes RVM should be straight forward. We need to implement the host and target properties as well as fixing any issues with the boot image runner, syscall support, etc.

        Currently the build is failing in Harmony:

        I've started a wiki page to describe the build process:

        By using the HDK download, massaging the dll and jar files into our expected structure and with r14882 the build can get as far as boot image writing but fails due to differences between the UNIX Harmony and Windows Harmony primordials.

        MRP, a fork of the Jikes RVM, provides support for building on Windows using Apache Harmony (which has now been retired). Some of the changes for building on Windows are not specific to Apache Harmony and could be applied to the RVM.
