JCC is a C++ code generator for producing the glue code necessary to call
into Java classes from CPython via Java's Native Invocation Interface (JNI).
JCC generates C++ wrapper classes that hide all the gory details of JNI
access as well Java memory and object reference management.
JCC generates CPython types that make these C++ classes accessible from a
Python interpreter. JCC attempts to make these Python types pythonic by
detecting iterators and property accessors. Iterators and mappings may also
be declared to JCC.
This package is not perfect yet but I need some input from other developers.
The main problem is that it uses rpath. This is because java-1.6.0-openjdk does add libjvm.so and libjava.so to the general linker config in /etc/ld.so.conf.d/. What should we do in this case?
It doesn't make sense to keep this bug open when Fedora's OpenJDK package does not have the necessary capabilities. The bug is more than 6 years old so the spec file is of course completely out of date.
