java Oracle's Java 6 virtual machine release under the GPL v2
java Oracle's Java 6 Runtime Environment under the GPL v2
- Add 2012/10/16 security patches from IcedTea6 1.11.5. 
- Completely turn off parallel build by default and remove parallel build
hack for HotSpot. There were several reports that it fails to build under
certain environment, ports/162991 for example. Users can still do parallel
build by setting FORCE_MAKE_JOBS (and MAKE_JOBS_NUMBER if desired).
- Implement os::available_memory(). Now it is consistent with "vm.vmtotal"
sysctl(3) MIB rather than bogus (physical memory / 4).
- Prefer sysconf(_SC_NPROCESSORS_CONF) over HW_NCPU sysctl MIB to get the
number of installed processors. There is no functional difference except
for CURRENT, which obtains the information from ELF aux vector.
- Prefer sysconf(_SC_PHYS_PAGES) * sysconf(_SC_PAGESIZE) over HW_USERMEM
sysctl MIB to get size of physical memory. Although it looks more logical
to find currently available memory, it has an inevitable side-effect, i. e.,
it changes dynamically depending on current wired page count. Therefore,
it is unpredictable and not too useful some times. For example, launcher
uses the parameter to determine initial heap size and machine class for i386.
Now it is more consistent with other places (and Linux JDK/JREs, including
the ones we have in ports tree).
- Implement os::active_processor_count() using cpuset_getaffinity(2). For
example, Runtime.getRuntime().availableProcessors() now returns number of
available processors for the current process as it should.
- Sync. launchers (java_md.c) for HotSpot and JDK as much as possible for
maintainability. As a good side-effect, launcher for i386 can now determine
machine class based on the current hardware configuration. Previously,
client VM was always chosen by default.
- Fix CounterGet(), which is only used for debugging launcher.
- Add swap info for os::print_memory_info().
