I already sent that patch to awt-dev for review, a while ago:


I got no reply, so I'm sending it here, maybe it's a better fit? ;-)


I am currently working on a port of AWT/Java2D to DirectFB (using
Caciocavallo [1] as a porting layer).

I hit one obstacle that is the X11FontManager. I want to use fontconfig
to work with fonts, but can't use anything X11.

I refactored X11FontManager and related classes and native code to avoid
calling anything X11 specific. Basically I created a superclass of
X11FontManager called FcFontManager that does all the fontconfig related
stuff, and use that in my backend. The changes should not affect the X11

Can you please review the changes here:


I would like to push this into jdk9-client if you think it's ok.

Best regards,
