Regarding bug JDK-8008602: Sample code in tools.jar.
Does anyone have any insight in whether or not the JPDA example code in com.sun.tools.example.** should be kept, or if should be removed altogether?
AFAIK no code outside of the example package depends upon it. The build does however fail with
"make: *** No rule to make target `.../tl/jdk/src/share/classes/com/sun/tools/example/README', needed by `.../tl/build/linux-x86_64-normal-server-release/jdk/demo/jpda/com/sun/tools/example/README'. Stop."
and I can't find the reason while browsing / grepping in the make files.
Any input on the matter would be greately appreciated.
