Description Martin Ryzl 2007-08-02 17:01:26 UTC
org.openide.util.Utilities should recognize Win64. OS specific code is necessary when loading native dll on Windows.
Comment 1 Martin Ryzl 2007-08-02 17:04:22 UTC
adding dependency to demostrate there is a use case. Obviously a workaround exists.
Comment 2 _ rkubacki 2007-08-03 08:59:13 UTC
Another example where we query if we run on 32 or 64 bit is -
extbrowser/src/org/netbeans/modules/extbrowser/ The same usecase.

What are you suggesting Martin? Method like 'boolean Utilities.is64bit()'? Note that Solaris has 64-bit JVM too.
Comment 3 Martin Ryzl 2007-08-03 09:07:00 UTC
it might be a solution.
