Subject [jira] [Commented] (MATH-1406) official support for compiling on GWT 2.8
Date Sun, 02 Apr 2017 19:43:41 GMT


Michael Borcherds commented on MATH-1406:

Just tried RNG 1.0, it already compiles fine with GWT 2.8.0 (no problems with FastMath, ClassCastException
or clone())

The 3 major changes needed to apache math are:
* remove reliance on ClassCastException (obvious and uncontroversial)
* remove FastMath and rely on native implementations (less code to maintain so also good in
my view) 
* add implementations to replace clone() everywhere (a bit boring to do, would need testing)

I'm able and willing to help with any of that, just decide what you would like :)

be made into a JavaScript library for example)
