66javac reentrant in 1.4.1
- Feb 13, 2002The javac compiler in J2SE 1.4.1 will be
reentrant. That was a prerequisite to
implementing an API. Earlier versions
of the compiler were "synchronized" to
prevent concurrent use. Now the compiler
has no static data except constants.
The feature set for J2SE 1.5 is being defined
right now. If an API for javac makes the cut
I will be starting a JSR for its definition.
