DISCLAIMER: These notes are from the defunct k8 project which precedes SquirrelJME. The notes for SquirrelJME start on 2016/02/26! The k8 project was effectively a Java SE 8 operating system and as such all of the notes are in the context of that scope. That project is no longer my goal as SquirrelJME is the spiritual successor to it.


Abstract classes got private constructors, so the only thing I can determine which causes that is that the isPrivate() goes true for package private and normal private. So moving package private ahead and then forcing a private constructor to become package private if it would noinit when abstract. The next thing to do is, if a superclass was package private and it got bumped to a higher supertype, borrow all the methods from the supertype if they do not already exist in the class.


I also need to recurse generic stuff because that is used.


Also for the newline and tab adding code when I get to it, I know how it will be done. Each line will be read with a base indentation level from the number of tabs at the start. If the line is longer than 78 columns or so then it will be split at a comma. If there is no comma but a string is there, it will be sliced to fit as needed. However if there is a comma and a string then the string will be split. If there are no strings eligible to be split and no commas, then it is on consecutive joins where whitespace is not counted. Commas will always be before the newline. Any new lines which are created will have an addition indentation level. Another thing I have to solve is where a class extends a private (including package) class which implements something but is missing from an interface implementation. This means I will have to go through interfaces to see if everything that is abstract is implemented in the current class if it is not abstract itself. Then if the method is missing in definition it would be declared. However, generics complicate things a bit. The only classes which give me this problem so far are the two StringBuilder and StringBuffer classes. Although I only see the error for StringBuilder. Everything in StringBuffer is synchronized though so that would have to override.


All the classes were generated, need fixes. Perhaps I should remove @Override.


The StringBuilder and StringBuffer classes require manual fixing. There needs to be a package private class "javax.naming.NameImpl" as that is used and is part of a protected field.


Never knew Java had an authentication system that could do logins and such. Although, I do wonder if it can be faked.


Well you can trick anything. Although if the other end of the auth system is the kernel and the kernel asks you about authentication to open a server socket then the following may occur. If you faked it your program might proceed then just fail when the socket is opened. Or do something else such as a virtual local only socket. So the classpath would have to contain core modules for stuff such as password logins and such. So this would mean that the kernel handles the login of users. The kernel can probably do a better job than userspace when it comes to passwords, because some userspace app could inject a key logger. So the kernel would have to make it so key logging and such is not possible. Although, if you were to debug the raw inputs (say with USB snooping) then such protections would fail. So some actions such as that may require a login to work. So this way, authentication could be quite nice. There could be a captcha of sorts or a password request.


The class library at least in the later parts is rather interdependent.


What will happen next is writing my neat code writer, then merge in the classes and compile the runtime fixing any compilation issues (while keeping it mostly blank).
