Android problems

Peter-2
Hello ;)

I've taken a bit of a hiatus, but now I'm back to playing with Kawa and
Android. I've run into a few problems...

1) Kawa seems to be compiled against 1.8, which uses
java.lang.invoke.MethodHandle a lot, which Android does not seem to
support. Is there a simple way to compile a kawa.jar against 1.6, so I
can use it for Android?

2) In the following code, I get a kawa segfault. It seems to be related
to the anonymous inner class, if I factor that out, things work fine.

(define-simple-class test (<android.app.Activity>)
          ((onCreate (savedInstanceState :: <android.os.Bundle>)):: void
           (invoke-special <android.app.Activity> (this) 'onCreate savedInstanceState)
           (let* ((self (this)))
             (let* ((adpt (object (<android.widget.ArrayAdapter>)
                                  ((*init*)
                                   (invoke-special <android.widget.ArrayAdapter> (this) '*init* self (static-field android.R$layout 'simple_list_item_1)))
                                  ((getView (position :: int) (convert-view :: android.view.View) (parent :: android.view.ViewGroup)) :: android.view.View
                                   #!null)))
                    (lv (<android.widget.ListView> self adapter: adpt)))
               (setContentView lv)))))

> make -k
CLASSPATH=kawa.jar:/opt/android-sdk/platforms/android-14/android.jar java kawa.repl -d bin/classes -P test. --module-static-run --warn-undefined-variable --warn-unknown-member --warn-invoke-unknown-method -C foo.scm

        at kawa.repl.main(repl.java:820)
make: *** [Makefile:2: all] Error 255

Is this somehow my fault, or is this a bug in the compiler?

Thanks for any help!

Greetings, Peter

Apparently Android O will support MethodHandles.

You need to build Kawa from source, using the configure flag
     --with-android=/path/to/android.jar

These instructions should help; however, they are a bit out-of-date:
     https://www.gnu.org/software/kawa/Building-for-Android.html

(Advice for updating the instructions would be very welcome.)

Could be both :-)

As a general rule, any segfault or NullPointerException in the compiler is a compiler bug.
(I don't count exceptions in for example user-written macro transformers - however,
the compiler should catch those and print a helpful error message.)

Sometimes a compiler bug is triggered by a bug in the application.

I was able to reproduce the NullPointerException, so I'll take a look later.

I checked in a fix for the following. (Only into the master branch; I can
cherry-pick it into the kawa-2.4 branch if requested.)

I also checked in a testcase dericed from yours, but not Android-dependent.
It 'stestsuite/nesting-1.scm.

Great, thank you very much for the swift fix!
