alternatives system. Can you describe your GNU Classpath use-cases a
little more? For instance... you're building Limewire with what? And
to run on what JRE?
cacao and jamvm can use (share) the standalone classpath. Sometimes, an
updated glibj.zip is useful just for building (API stubs), and sometimes
also for running (although less often). I cannot speak for Paul's
particular use case, but this has been my general experience.
In any case, the use of classpath has nothing to do with the ability to
set up the cacao and jamvm JVM's to use the JPackage alternatives system
(I have done it).
As for ikvm, the story is more complicated, because although it can run
Java programs, neither the layout or the tools it provides are the same
as what would be included in the JDK.
