ikvmstub(1) generate java stub class files from a CIL assembly


ikvmstub assembly | path


IKVM is an implentation of the Java for the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) runtime. It includes a byte code JIT compiler/verifier to translate Java byte code to CIL and GNU Classpath to provide the Java class libraries. ikvmsub generates a jar file containing stub class files from a CIL assembly enabling Java code to be compiled against the assembly. When these stub classes are used with ikvm(1), the references to the stubs are replaced with references to the real CIL references.

Assemblies are first searched for in the default load context, usually the Global Assembly Cache (GAC). If the assembly is not found there, it is searched in the path or the current directory if no path is given.
