Firstly; congratulation to all of you at Sun. Open sourcing Java under GPL is a very important and bold move. Interesting time ahead.
Secondly; While browsing through the PhoneME Feature release I realized that the Jazelle-related code (src/vm/cpu/arm/jazelle), has been removed. Previously, ARM has refused to disclose any information about the Jazelle architecture/instruction set referring to some patent issue with Sun as the reason. With the open sourcing of Java I would have assmued this claim to be void. Can we expect this issue to be resolved between Sun and ARM so that the relevant code can be released?
