I'm interested in JLS-compatibility of kaffe coreAPI.
Pleased to meet you.:-)
By the way, I found that Random Class is ( probably ) not based on JLS.
I want to hear your opinion.
JLS describes for Random class below.
| 21.9 The Class java.util.Random
| Java implementations must use all the algorithms shown here for the
| class Random, for the sake of absolute portability of Java
In the case of kaffe-1.0.b3, Random class is implemented by different
routine and the routine return different random value from JLS based
routine in same seed.
I think that it means "absolute portability" is not guaranteed.
What do you think that?
