duke@0 1 README:
ohair@7650 2 This file should be located at the top of the OpenJDK Mercurial root
ohair@7650 3 repository. This root repository will include a "make" directory,
ohair@7650 4 and a Makefile for building the entire OpenJDK.
ohair@7650 5 A full OpenJDK repository set (forest) should also include the following
ohair@7650 6 6 nested repositories:
ohair@7650 7 "jdk", "hotspot", "langtools", "corba", "jaxws" and "jaxp".
ohair@7650 8 There are also several source downloads for the jax* repositories that
ohair@7650 9 will be needed.
ohair@7650 10
ohair@7650 11 This one root repository can be obtained with something like:
neugens@10208 12
neugens@10208 13 hg clone openjdk8
neugens@10208 14
neugens@10208 15 To make sure you have all the nested repositories, you can run the
neugens@10208 16 script located in the same respository as this file:
neugens@10208 17
neugens@10208 18 cd openjdk8 && sh ./
neugens@10208 19

duke@0 36 See README-builds.html if you run into problems.
duke@0 37
ohair@7650 38 3. Do a complete build of the OpenJDK:
