    Details

      x86
    • OS:
      linux

      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      Even though there already 3 compact profiles defined, that allow generating a jre with smaller footprint, it would be useful to add the capability of generating a jre that contains only the classes that are used by an application. The jre could be generated as part of the compilation.

      JUSTIFICATION :
      Reduce the footprint (disk and memory) of the jre

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Modify jrecreate so that, instead of accepting as input one of the pre-defined compact profile, the tool takes as input the full path of a jar, infers the list of classes required by thr application and creates a jre that contains only those classes
