Description
To remove our dependency on JavaVM.framework, we need to remove use of macros, functions and classes in JavaNativeFoundation.framework. This will require extending JNU to replace functionality provided by JNF, moving to more generic JNI code and possibly implementing our own replacement Java type coercion class.
