After a long-long time we are going to go on holiday with my beloved wife.
While I am AFK (pick one) please just sit patient and try to find the bug that prevents the OS from booting, will ya?
See ya in August.
This is more of a mental note to self. But it gives a small insight to what I'm battling with.
I've just traced in which way VMNetChannel allocates its ByteBuffer (ByteBuffers are used for pretty much anything handling data, not only network stuff, so its a pretty crucial thing to have).
Starting in VMNetChannel, we find a ByteBuffer.allocate(int capacity). It goes something like this:
After my latest musings with JNI and JVM interfaces, I am finally back at implementing the network support. I have implemented it pretty like described in previous entry and also made the necessary classpath changes. Furthermore, the classpath implementation, java-net library, now fully depends on the various JVM_-functions exported by the main JAmiga engine, i.e. JVM_Socket, JVM_Bind and so on.
Another nice batch of instructions implemented in the recent update. This is an important milestone: most of the instructions are JIT compiled now, that are used in the Mandelbrot test. Why is it important?
Because finally we can do some benchmarking!
