The future of class2llvm tool

Hello!

Recently I found an interesting tool within java front end of llvm project. It is “class2llvm”.
My future researchs showed that this tool is much out of date and needs a lot of things to do for its completion.
As far as I understood, It doesn’t support even such elementary things as exceptions handling and garbage collection.
Am I right in my conclusions?

Could you answer such questions:

  1. What is the future of this project? Do the LLVM Project developers have plans to develop it or “Java front end” with “class2llvm” tool live the last days? If it has a future, when it will being developed again?
  2. Will it support dalvik bytecode?

Any help would greatly appreciated.
Sorry if I came to the wrong shop. :slight_smile:

With best regards,
Volodymyr.

If you're looking for java to llvm transformation, you should have a look to the VMKit project instead (which is also part of the LLVM framework).

I think the iced tea JVM project also has a JIT compiler based on LLVM ( http://icedtea.classpath.org/wiki/ZeroSharkFaq )

Any help would greatly appreciated.
