Cool. What are you doing research on, if I may ask? I'm curious ;)

Yes. The real version of the file is created in the
$builddir/include/java_lang_Object.h file when you build Kaffe using the
make command.

You could modify the java file
libraries/javalib/external/classpath/java/lang/Object.java , and add a
field there. Such a field should then show up in the generated headers
as well.
