AttachCurrentThread documentation needs clariication

      Description

      Name: md23716 Date: 03/28/2001

      The current spec for AttachCurrentThread says:

       AttachCurrentThread

       jint AttachCurrentThread(JavaVM *vm, JNIEnv **p_env,
       void *thr_args);

       Attaches the current thread to a Java VM. Returns a JNI interface pointer
       in the JNIEnv argument.

       Trying to attach a thread that is already attached is a no-op.

       A native thread cannot be attached simultaneously to two Java VMs.

       When a thread is attached to the VM, the context class loader is the
       bootstrap loader.


      I have had clarification from Sun that the bootstrap classloader is
      represented by null. This information should be added to the
      documentation.
