RE: Re: Java-based Subversion-client

And if you want to implement the file:// protocol for repos. access in your all-java client, or want you 100% pure java client to be able to create a repos, then you also need to implement bdb in java, in a 100% file-compatible way... including it's use of the pthread semaphores in the mmapped file...

That doesn't sound very appealing to me. I've been thinking about it, and 100% pure java doesn't sound like a realistic option to me.
You'd have to have some JNI lib in there somewhere.

No, it would mean reimplementing huge amounts of complex C code.
Nobody's done it, not surprisingly.

There are nice JNI libraries to the C libraries, however.
