Thanks for the help.

Sorry, I used the plural form, when I should have used the singular form.  In libjsound there is only one case - there were other issues in the rest of the OpenJDK code...

I will also

First thing you need is a bug :

Second is a sponsor. I can help there.

Can you resubmit with your patch in-line (not an attachment) and the subject line:
RFR: 8224056: Fix some assignments of string literals to LPSTR (instead of LPCSTR)

You said "a few issues" and "some of these" but you only have one that I see

-LPSTR TranslateDSError(HRESULT hr) {
+LPCSTR TranslateDSError(HRESULT hr) {

What am I missing ? I don't want a patch per case, I'd like just one patch for all of java sound.

We should also test this builds in the standard mode although I don't see why it should not.

I've been trying to get the JDK to compile with the new /permissive- switch in VS2017 (https://devblogs.microsoft.com/cppblog/permissive-switch/) however there have been a few issues in various parts of the code.  There are a few issues in the libjsound code where we attempt to assign string literals to LPSTR variables (instead of LPCSTR).  I took some time to fix some of these and attached a patch.  Let me know if you have any comments/feedback.  I'm assuming that libjsound is owned by sound-dev, but if I'm mistaken, please do let me know the right team/mailing list to send this to.
