I was trying to come up with a list of things to do to get the SCTP
implementation working on JDK6, when I came across a previous attempt I
made at it. To my surprise I had actually got further than I thought,
and I found a list of changes I wanted to push into JDK7 so make this
simpler ( as well as a few new ones ).
From that I created;
6915313: (sctp) Reorganize implementation to make it more feasible to
port to JDK6
With these changes applied we can simply take the JDK7 SCTP code, and
with two very minor edits have it run with JDK6. I did this and have it
running with JDK6u17. Without the above mentioned changes it is a little
more tricky because you need to make many more edits and recompile the
I will be requesting a review of 6915313 and hope to be in a position to
push it early next week. I can then send detailed instructions of how to
get it working with JDK 6.
