native jdk release schedule question

Hi again,
I managed to successfully build native java 142 on FreeBSD 5.2.1 after
upgrading ports and source to latest. No errors at all. What does that mean?
Somewhere in this thread was said that the new KSE is a problem for having
native java 14 on FreeBSD 5.2.1. Or it means that build is OK but once I
start using it some problem will show up? Is reporting bugs interesting to
the port team?
Cheers, Dani

Correct :).  I may have been amiss in this case though.  The native version
for FreeBSD 4.x needs some final tests that you can only do if you have an
NDA with the Foundation or Sun.  However, the native version for 5.x won't
happen until we can figure out why jdb (and anything else that uses JVMPI
or JVMDI) doesn't like KSEs.  If anyone is interested, thats definitely a
worthwhile project.
