Immutablo Smalltalk image embedding with APK

Registered by hilaire on 2012-02-05

To find a way to bundle a Smalltalk image with APK memory-efficiently and without much conversions. This was done previously
in Andreas' classic VM using application assets, but this requires to split the image into 1M chunks. Is there a way
to do this better?

Embedding of a Smalltalk image is now supported. An image can be split up into 1M segments by a standard split command

split -d -b 1M <source file> <prefix>.

creates <prefix>.00,<prefix>.01,<prefix>.02,<prefix>.03 etc

An image is assembled from these segments when the application is starting, and is saved in a private area (other applications cannot access it). No significant changes were made in the res of the VM code.

I am considering this problem solved.
