Some still remain -- there seems to be a problem with computing the
serialization uid for some classes (eg java.applet.Applet.AccessibleApplet).

The nightly japi runs should improve a little starting tonight.
There weren't very many errors, the results improve less than a point.

For a (possibly) larger improvement, would you consider building GNU JAXP as part of classpath.japi.gz? Since Classpath has apparently made the official decision that this is the recommended source for javax.xml for the moment (at least), it would give a fairer reflection of the state of Classpath if it were included.

I'd like to see a similar thing done for Tritonus as well; I don't know whether Classpath will be officially recommending that for javax.sound but it seems to be the leading free implementation. Kaffe, which bundles it, scores 100% on javax.sound where Classpath scores 0%.

I've regenerated my jdk japi files using your patch and I'm regenerating the results pages now. I don't know if the JDK was somehow immune from the effects of the bug, but it can't hurt. Still planning to do a new release with the patch.
