      Description



      Name: akC45999 Date: 07/07/98



      The Java VM spec chapter "4.5 Fields" reads:
      ...
      If the method is either native or abstract, its method_info structure must not have a Code attribut.

      But the attached test shows that VM doesn't reject a class which contain two fields with the same name and descriptor.

      --------------------------------- test.java

      import java.io.PrintStream;

      public class test {
        
        public static void main(String argv[]) {

      try {
      Class.forName("BadClass");
      System.out.println("Very bad");
      } catch (Throwable e) {
      System.out.println("Exception " + e);
      }
        }
      }

      --------------------------------- BadClass.jasm

      class BadClass
      {
      Field badField:I;
      Field badField:I;
      }

      ------------------------------------- dotest

      #!/bin/sh
      TESTCLASSES=/opt/home/testclasses
      CLASSPATH=$TESTCLASSES
      export CLASSPATH

      jasm -d $TESTCLASSES *.jasm
      javac -d $TESTCLASSES *.java
      java -verify test;
