Re: [p2-dev] Pack200 compression
|As far as I understand from http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/jdk-dev/2018-June/001472.html, you don't necessarily need to start with Harmony implementation as there already is a full (read pack and unpack) Java implementation of pack200. http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk/jdk/file/2f2af62dfac7/src/java.base/share/classes/com/sun/java/util/jar/pack|
So I guess that one proposal to JEP336 could be: deprecate the c++ native implementation (as this is not used anymore for the JRE) but keep the spec + Java impl.
Then anyone (Peter?) could sign up to maintain it @ openjdk.

I'm not currently a committer, though happy to, if invited. :)To sum up: 1. The Pack200 clean room implementation written in Java, it can compress and decompress java bytecode and pack.gz files, it was a module developed as part of Apache Harmony, AL2 licensed. 2. Oracle owns the Pack200 Standard copyright. https://docs.oracle.com/javase/10/docs/specs/pack-spec.html 3. OpenJDK's Pack200 test compatibility kit, is GPL2 with classpath exception, (I haven't gone down this road yet, but it's ideal for testing compatibility, with some modification for the libraries different api). 4. We won't be implementing any of the Java API's copyrighted by Oracle.Oracle is deprecating the Pack200 standard and its GPL2 licensed implementation.https://docs.oracle.com/javase/10/docs/legal/copyright.htmlThanks,Peter.On 28/06/2018 8:54 PM, Mickael Istria wrote:

this and sharing the answer here?
Peter should do that as he knows better what he's exactly doing
;-). Also, I will be away next week and fully booked today.
Is Peter a committer on any Eclipse.org project? I'm afraid if he sends the request without backup from a committer, it will be rejected as "sorry, we only work for Eclipse.org projects, and don't do legal consulting for the whole wide world".
