wrt. our (SAPs) various ports which are running on old machines, built
with old compilers for compatibility, I would like to find out about
the OpenJDK policy regarding 'real' C++ features.
Recently, we found increasing usage of C++ features.
- 'throw()' in nmethod operator new
- usage of namespace std::
- template template parameters in binaryTreeDictionary.hpp|cpp
We would like to know whether you are planning to increase the
usage of C++ or even use C++11 features. Or, whether you are planning
to keep the policy to avoid C++ features that caused problems to
compilers in the past.
