Need code for JRE builds and JKernel to:
  1) Avoid dependencies on most Java security classes
  2) Generate secure hashcodes corresponding to each JKernel bundle for a resource
     that will be used by JKernel during bundle downloads
  3) Check downloaded bundles to see that they are not corrupt and that they contain
     the same bits as in the bundles created by a given JRE build

See comments for additional details.

EVALUATION Definitely need this.

SUGGESTED FIX The following new classes are proposed to implement this RFE: sun.security.provider.StandaloneMessageDigest sun.security.provider.StandaloneSHA sun.io.CheckedFileInputStream sun.io.CheckedFileOutputStream sun.misc.ByteArrayToFromHexDigits (might not need this long term) Plus the following build utility: /a/jdk/j2se/make/tools/jkernel/AppendCheckValue.java Plus changes to various Jkernel and make files. *** (#1 of 1): [ UNSAVED ] ###@###.###
