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.


So let us see, I must make sure the relative stuff, may be in a package or from it. That is, is it relative first and then the package, or package first, then relative? It appears that the package is done first, then the relative. I suppose I can use the URI form to build the path information.


For networking, my plan is to have per process networking where each process sees virtual interfaces. This would essentially act as sort of a primitive firewall and would permit all processes to essentially be hidden behind a proxy (HTTP, SOCKS, Tor, SSH, PPP, etc.) without even having support for proxies or requiring dynamic injection. This can also be used when connecting to random wireless networks. Pretty much every OS lacks this capability. When joining a network you might want to quickly use PPP or another technology to connect to your home network. However, until your connection is established then usually all processes will be exposed and broadcasting themselves. With processes behind virtual interfaces and such, packets could either be delayed or dropped. Then all packets and such could be routed through to PPP or a similar proxy and if it cannot support certain types (say UDP over Tor) then it could reply with an ICMP error. I do wonder though if there are ICMP errors such as "Packet type not supported" or similar.


PackageContentsFileManager might just be overly complicated, I could just instead have a forwarding one with modified behavior for input source and class files which are derived from package contents. Then outputs would use the preexisting system file manager since it might manage every system better for the most part.
