      Description



      Name: pvR10198 Date: 05/26/2004


      Current (0.3.27) JVMTI spec describing RedefineClasses gives the following
      definition which is never used:

      | An original and a redefined method should be considered equivalent if:
      | - their bytecodes are the same except for indices into the constant pool and
      | - the referenced constants are equal.

      The spec should also say that redefined method is obsolete if it is not
      equivalent in terms of this definition.
