Currently the maximum number of jar files we can put in the bootclasspath (bcp) in order to generate class data sharing archive is 8, with fix of JDK-6304817, it will be changed to 32. This is still not flexible. One of the problem is if ISVs put more than 30 jar files in the jre/lib/endorsed directory, the problem mentioned in JDK-6440118 will still appear. The ultimate way to solve the issue is to allow as many jar files as possible from bcp. Since it involves a good amount of changes if we make a varible length header of class data sharing archive, I think it would make sense to do it in dolphin.
