Summary and background
Icon Foundation is accepting proposals for creating a tool to analyze which Java libraries, subsets of libraries, or classes are compatible with the Icon - Java Execution Environment for smart contract development. Icon Foundation has been in operation since 2017 and has grown to include thousands of users. Smart contract development is crucial for the growth and sustenance of the Icon Ecosystem. Such a library analysis tool would be very important given the restrictions on allowable methods from the Java standard libraries.
This request for proposal has been published to gather bids for the Icon - Java library analysis portion of our Icon Interoperability Incentivization plan.
