> 7170969: Add @GenerateNativeHeader to classes whose fields need to be exported for JNI
> http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~ohair/openjdk8/generateHeaders1/webrev/
> The new build infrastructure wants to fully automate the generation of the JNI header files (running javah).
> On classes that have "native" methods this is obvious, but class that only export constants, and whose constants
> are needed in the JNI native code, we need to mark these classes as needing their native header file generated.
> This change is adding:
> import javax.tools.annotation.GenerateNativeHeader;
> /* No native methods here, but the constants are needed in the supporting JNI code */
> @GenerateNativeHeader
> To any class without a native method, but needing to expose it's constants to the native code.
