As usual, I updated the tarball containing the necessary patches and
build scripts for big changes in 2004-06-11 of java-gui-branch.
(In the same URL)

Please consult README in the tarball first to continue build process.

Let's see how java-gui-branch looks like in Kaffe:


We can conclude that:
1. the file selection dialog is working.
2. image showing Transvirtual Technologies is working eventually.
3. there is some strange behavior in font rendering, and some text gone.  

It's interesting while running:

  jserv at venux:~/expr/gui-branch-kaffe$ ./run.sh 
  NOTE: It is impossible to set the main thread stack
  NOTE: size because the system stack size is too low

However, it still dumped the same no matter how I configured Kaffe.
Could anybody help to fix the problem?
