Make JVM creation method generic

Reported by: hinerm Owned by: hinerm
Priority: minor Milestone: imagej-2.0-alpha5

Severity: non-issue Keywords: BFITK
Cc: Blocked By:


Currently in the BF-ITK plug-in, when a JVM is created the code is local to the module currently using the JVM. Ideally, we would have a single JVM creation method to facilitate simpler code maintenance.

This method should set all the appropriate options and accept 2 parameters - a dir and path string.

a jtools library has been added to Jar2Lib. Bf-cpp and bf-itk-jace have been modified to use this new library. However, it is not yet fully functional.

Desired modifications:

  • Allow for Jar2Lib to create a list of Jars to be automatically included if no classpath/jar list is provided
  • Allow for overriding the java library path

Sorry Mark, I had no time to work on this. I am passing back to you. We can discuss whether it is really a priority, though.

  • Status changed from assigned to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

jtools now automatically checks for a "jar" subdirectory, either in the working directory (if no classpath is provided) or in <classpath>/jar if a path is provided. All files in this directory are added to the classpath used to instantiate the JVM.
