I'm currently in the process of trying to port the changes from
IcedTea6 back to the IcedTea tree so we have an up-to-date IcedTea
build of b26. One thing I've noticed is that the Color classes are
not yet in this tree:
1. ERROR in /home/andrew/builder/icedtea/openjdk/jdk/src/share/classes/java/awt/Color.java
(at line 32)
The import java.awt.color.ColorSpace cannot be resolved
In earlier versions of IcedTea, we supplemented this hole with GNU
Classpath color classes, which the merge removed. I can add these
back, but it would seem more ideal to use the same implementation as
OpenJDK6, assuming these will eventually reach OpenJDK too.
Is there an ETA for the color classes reaching OpenJDK? And are the
imported classes available somewhere separately in the meantime?
Failing the latter, I can import from OpenJDK6 but this would make
things easier and cleaner.
