[PATCH] Windows 32-bit DLL name decoration

Hi Alexey,

Thanks for your reply.

I will definitely give it a try though I’m not sure if that’ll be a breaking change. This is because JNICALL modifier is defined to be __stdcall on windows which is both specified on jdwpTransport_OnLoad exported functions both for dt_socket.dll and dt_shmem.dll. 

The __stdcall is ignored on x64 platforms and also name decoration is not applied (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/cpp/build/reference/decorated-names?view=vs-2017). I believe that’s why we don’t experience any problems on x64 builds.

Removing JNICALL (thus __stdcall) modifier (apparently only applies to x86 builds) will result in the calling convention to be changed, and thus will change how parameters are ordered and also the stack cleanup rules. I think this may result in problems in programs that are designed to load shared libraries and its exported functions at runtime (not bound by link time which probably won’t cause any issues - assuming that they use the shared function signature) - as in https://github.com/AdoptOpenJDK/openjdk-jdk11u/blob/5f01925b80ed851b133ee26fbcb07026ac04149e/src/jdk.jdwp.agent/share/native/libjdwp/transport.c#L99.

Any thoughts?

Regards,

Ali

Whereas 64-bit MSVC builds don’t apply any name decorations on exported functions, 32-bit builds apply them - which requires either def files or /export flags to be specified on the linker arguments.
