digitalmars.D.announce - j2d - translating Java to D with the language machine - progress

Hello - just to let you all know that the j2d java-to-D-language 
translator is now producing clean code (accepted by gdc syntax pass) for 
all the bits of  of gnu classpath that I have tried, and also for the 
joeq_core part of the joeq jvm-in-java.

The difficult bit starts now: getting it to produce code that is 
actually correct and works.

NB 'y?' means that the status is subject to regression tests, or that 
there are some errors which are understood. The actual code produced is 
probably wrong in many places.

At present gdc compilation is failing mainly because:

* gdc complains that modules in the java.lang hierarchy are importing 
themselves - the code generator needs to notice this

* gdc complains "invalid UTF character \U0000ffff" for "char MAX_VALUE = 
'\uFFFF';" and similar (should be wchar or dchar?)

Of course there is there is still a great deal to do. The sources (about 
700 rules, 1100 lines) are in SVN at dsource - it's easiest to start at


Suggestions, feedback, assistance all welcome as ever.
