JPDA is just the architecture around JVMDI, so your work is directly
relevant. I would greatly appreciate if you could look around and see
if you could pass along with work in any form you might have (including
I am not sure about the JVM GetEnv patch and its status. Any chance you
can dig that up too would be greatly appreciated. From what I found via
google, the GetEnv stuff looks like it got very close to being passed
Now I understand the relationship between the call and support for

I did work on JVMDI back then, but I don't follow Java stuff anymore and
don't know what JPDA is or how relavent my stuff would be. JVMDI is a
low level protocol for debugging and when I stopped working on it I had
hacked together just enough to step, set breakpoints and do some
variable inspection. This was against 1.6 I think. I'm not even sure I
still have the code, but if you really think it would help I could look
around for it. I had a jvmdi.h file too, which took a while to type up,
but is very straightforward (I generated it directly from the spec).
Also, I think my patch for the JVM GetEnv method was applied but I'm not
certain. I probably posted it to the mailing list at least.
