Description Robin Green 2005-07-05 18:35:40 EDT
This patch adds a bunch of (incompatible) changes to /usr/bin/aot-compile
(changes by Gary Benson) and to /usr/bin/find-and-aot-compile (changes by me).
It has been discussed previously on the fedora-java list and I've updated it
according to criticisms made.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

It makes the following changes:

- Allow compiling multiple jars in a single call
- Swap order of options and jars, to be consistent with gcj and most other Linux
- Automatically generate destination .so names

- Adds options --libdir and --skiptar (see usage in script)
- Moves generated .so file
- Registered generated .so files in a gcj-dbtool .db file (created by merging
individual .db files for each .jar/.so pair)

In summary, it makes AOT compilation simpler (because the gcj-dbtool stuff is
done automatically) and more efficient (because you can skip the .tar file
creation, which I don't really see the point of, to be honest).

Gary, can you confirm that the current aot-compile-rpm incorporates all these
changes?  I'd like to close this one, if possible.

It either incorporates them or makes them unnecessary.
