Description Jan Kratochvil 2007-12-22 16:02:46 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #371831 +++


GCC recently wanted to implement Java DW_TAG_interface_type (it was using
DW_TAG_structure_type for everything):

but DW_TAG_interface_type is so far completely unsupported by GDB:

Therefore DW_TAG_interface_type has became disabled now upstream:

But it would be nice to enable it for RHEL-5.2.  GDB currently autodetects the
interface type in java_type_print_derivation_info() according to ff it has
virtual inheritance (I expect it is not ambiguous for Java).

-- Additional comment from jakub@redhat.com on 2007-12-21 14:00 EST --
If RHEL5.2 gdb will handle it, Alex' patch can be backported.

The fix has been accepted upstream.
