Re: byteorder of java objects

Hi Seth

That's too bad. We can always have more trailblazers ;)

That should work IMHO. The byte order is defined to be big-endian on all
It is something else if you communicate with a C program (or
somethinglikethat) over the network. In that case I guess you would need to
make sure the C program uses big-endian order (as in all situations, not
necessarily crypto).
I'm not involved in developing any VM so I can't guarantee anything, but
according to "Java I/O" published by O'Reilly I can safely assure that the
byteorder is big-endian. (Check out the authors page, Cafe au Lait:
