SAXON .net IKVM upgrade plans to IKVM.WINDWARD

Added by Christof Reichel 2 months ago

Hello Community,

i am new user to the Saxon API in .net Framework 4.8 environment, so i have to get familar with the API and used assemblies.

After retrieving Saxon 10.5.1 via Nuget i have seen, that IKVM assemblies are deployed as well. That's OK, because saxon use the same Java base to operate over all products.

These IKVM assemblies are up2date according the original IKVM project that was discontiued.

But further researches, showes that there is a "fork" of IKVM called IKVM.WINDWARD

These project received changes in 2019, the original IKVM-Project last change was in 2015.

So my question is, are there any upgrade plans to IKVM.WINDWARD?

  • performance
  • bugfixes
  • stability
  • security-issues

Our initial attempt to compile with the Windward fork of IKVM was unsuccessful.

We're currently pursuing a different approach, namely source code conversion from Java to C#. I'm speaking about that project at Markup UK this afternoon, and you can find my paper online at https://markupuk.org/webhelp/index.html#ar04.html

First, thank you for your quick response.

That was my second thought, that IKVM.WINDWARD will be incompatible. I am looking forward for your announced approach.
