 <h2 id="external-library-requirements">External Library Requirements</h2>
 <p>Different platforms require different external libraries. In general, libraries are not optional - that is, they are either required or not used.</p>
 <p>If a required library is not detected by <code>configure</code>, you need to provide the path to it. There are two forms of the <code>configure</code> arguments to point to an external library: <code>--with-&lt;LIB&gt;=&lt;path&gt;</code> or <code>--with-&lt;LIB&gt;-include=&lt;path to include&gt; --with-&lt;LIB&gt;-lib=&lt;path to lib&gt;</code>. The first variant is more concise, but require the include files an library files to reside in a default hierarchy under this directory. In most cases, it works fine.</p>
 <p>As a fallback, the second version allows you to point to the include directory and the lib directory separately.</p>

 <h2 id="cross-compiling">Cross-compiling</h2>
 <p>Cross-compiling means using one platform (the <em>build</em> platform) to generate output that can ran on another platform (the <em>target</em> platform).</p>
 <p>The typical reason for cross-compiling is that the build is performed on a more powerful desktop computer, but the resulting binaries will be able to run on a different, typically low-performing system. Most of the complications that arise when building for embedded is due to this separation of <em>build</em> and <em>target</em> systems.</p>
-<p>This requires a more complex setup and build procedure. This section assumes you are familiar with cross-compiling in general, and will only deal with the particularities of cross-compiling OpenJDK.

-<p>Cross-compiling OpenJDK requires you to be able to build both for the build platform and for the target platform. The reason for the former is that we need to build and execute tools during the build process, both native tools and Java tools.</p>
-<p>If all you want to do is to compile a 32-bit version, for the same OS, on a 64-bit machine, consider using <code>--with-target-bits=32</code> instead of doing a full-blown cross-compilation. (While this surely is possible, it's a lot more work and will take much longer to build.)</p>

-<p>You <em>must</em> specify the target platform when cross-compiling. Doing so will also automatically turn the build into a cross-compiling mode.

Note that cross-compiling is only supported for gcc at the time being. The gcc standard is to prefix cross-compiling toolchains with the target denominator. If you follow this standard, <code>configure</code> is likely to pick up the toolchain correctly.</p>
 <p>The <em>build</em> toolchain will be autodetected just the same way the normal <em>build</em>/<em>target</em> toolchain will be autodetected when not cross-compiling.

 <p>Then, between the <code>Output from failing command(s) repeated here</code> and <code>End of repeated output</code> the first lines of output (stdout and stderr) from the actual failing command is repeated. In most cases, this is the error message that caused the build to fail.

 <p>Note that the build failure summary will only help you if the issue was a compilation failure or similar.

 <p>You can increase the verbosity of the log file, by the <code>LOG</code> control variable to <code>make</code>. If you want to see the command lines used in compilations, use <code>LOG=cmdlines</code>. To increase the general verbosity, use <code>LOG=info</code>, <code>LOG=debug</code> or <code>LOG=trace</code>. Both of these can be combined with <code>cmdlines</code>, e.g. <code>LOG=info,cmdlines</code>.

 <h2 id="test-selection">Test selection</h2>
 <p>All functionality is available using the run-test make target. In this use case, the test or tests to be executed is controlled using the <code>TEST</code> variable. To speed up subsequent test runs with no source code changes, run-test-only can be used instead, which do not depend on the source and test image build.</p>
 <p>For some common top-level tests, direct make targets have been generated. This includes all JTReg test groups, the hotspot gtest, and custom tests (if present). This means that <code>make run-test-tier1</code> is equivalent to <code>make run-test TEST=&quot;tier1&quot;</code>, but the latter is more tab-completion friendly. For more complex test runs, the <code>run-test TEST=&quot;x&quot;</code> solution needs to be used.</p>
 <p>The test specifications given in <code>TEST</code> is parsed into fully qualified test descriptors, which clearly and unambigously show which tests will be run. As an example, <code>:tier1</code> will expand to <code>jtreg:$(TOPDIR)/test/hotspot/jtreg:tier1 jtreg:$(TOPDIR)/test/jdk:tier1 jtreg:$(TOPDIR)/test/langtools:tier1 jtreg:$(TOPDIR)/test/nashorn:tier1 jtreg:$(TOPDIR)/test/jaxp:tier1</code>. You can always submit a list of fully qualified test descriptors in the <code>TEST</code> variable if you want to shortcut the parser.</p>
 <h3 id="jtreg">JTReg</h3>
 <p>JTReg tests can be selected either by picking a JTReg test group, or a selection of files or directories containing JTReg tests.</p>
-<p>JTReg test groups can be specified either without a test root, e.g. <code>:tier1</code> (or <code>tier1</code>, the initial colon is optional), or with, e.g. <code>hotspot:tier1</code>, <code>test/jdk:jdk_util</code> or <code>$(TOPDIR)/test/hotspot/jtreg:hotspot_all</code>. The test root can be specified either as an absolute path, or a path relative to the OpenJDK top directory, or the <code>test</code> directory. For simplicity, the hotspot JTReg test root, which really is <code>hotspot/jtreg</code> can be abbreviated as just <code>hotspot</code>.</p>
+<p>JTReg test groups can be specified either without a test root, e.g. <code>:tier1</code> (or <code>tier1</code>, the initial colon is optional), or with, e.g. <code>hotspot:tier1</code>, <code>test/jdk:jdk_util</code> or <code>$(TOPDIR)/test/hotspot/jtreg:hotspot_all</code>.

For simplicity, the hotspot JTReg test root, which really is <code>hotspot/jtreg</code> can be abbreviated as just <code>hotspot</code>.</p>
 <p>When specified without a test root, all matching groups from all test roots will be added. Otherwise, only the group from the specified test root will be added.</p>
-<p>Individual JTReg tests or directories containing JTReg tests can also be specified, like <code>test/hotspot/jtreg/native_sanity/JniVersion.java</code> or <code>hotspot/jtreg/native_sanity</code>. Just like for test root selection, you can either specify an absolute path (which can even point to JTReg tests outside the source tree), or a path relative to either the OpenJDK top directory or the <code>test</code> directory. <code>hotspot</code> can be used as an alias for <code>hotspot/jtreg</code> here as well.</p>

 <p>As long as the test groups or test paths can be uniquely resolved, you do not need to enter the <code>jtreg:</code> prefix. If this is not possible, or if you want to use a fully qualified test descriptor, add <code>jtreg:</code>, e.g. <code>jtreg:test/hotspot/jtreg/native_sanity</code>.</p>
 <h3 id="gtest">Gtest</h3>
 <p>Since the Hotspot Gtest suite is so quick, the default is to run all tests. This is specified by just <code>gtest</code>, or as a fully qualified test descriptor <code>gtest:all</code>.</p>
 <p>If you want, you can single out an individual test or a group of tests, for instance <code>gtest:LogDecorations</code> or <code>gtest:LogDecorations.level_test_vm</code>. This can be particularly useful if you want to run a shaky test repeatedly.</p>
-<p>For Gtest, there is a separate test suite for each JVM variant. The JVM variant is defined by adding <code>/&lt;variant&gt;</code> to the test descriptor, e.g. <code>gtest:Log/client</code>. If you specify no variant, gtest will run once for each JVM variant present (e.g. server, client). So if you only have the server JVM present, then <code>gtest:all</code> will be equivalent to <code>gtest:all/server</code>.</p>

 <h2 id="test-suite-control">Test suite control</h2>
 <p>It is possible to control various aspects of the test suites using make control variables.</p>
 <p>These variables use a keyword=value approach to allow multiple values to be set. So, for instance, <code>JTREG=&quot;JOBS=1;TIMEOUT=8&quot;</code> will set the JTReg concurrency level to 1 and the timeout factor to 8. This is equivalent to setting <code>JTREG_JOBS=1 JTREG_TIMEOUT=8</code>, but using the keyword format means that the <code>JTREG</code> variable is parsed and verified for correctness, so <code>JTREG=&quot;TMIEOUT=8&quot;</code> would give an error, while <code>JTREG_TMIEOUT=8</code> would just pass unnoticed.</p>
 <p>To separate multiple keyword=value pairs, use <code>;</code> (semicolon). Since the shell normally eats <code>;</code>, the recommended usage is to write the assignment inside qoutes, e.g. <code>JTREG=&quot;...;...&quot;</code>. This will also make sure spaces are preserved, as in <code>JTREG=&quot;VM_OPTIONS=-XshowSettings -Xlog:gc+ref=debug&quot;</code>.</p>
-<p>(Other ways are possible, e.g. using backslash: <code>JTREG=JOBS=1\;TIMEOUT=8</code>. Also, as a special technique, the string <code>%20</code> will be replaced with space for certain options, e.g. <code>JTREG=VM_OPTIONS=-XshowSettings%20-Xlog:gc+ref=debug</code>. This can be useful if you have layers of scripts and have trouble getting proper quoting of command line arguments through.)</p>
