duke@0 1 README:
ohair@274 2 This file should be located at the top of the OpenJDK Mercurial root
ohair@274 3 repository. This root repository will include a "make" directory,
ohair@274 4 and a Makefile for building the entire OpenJDK.
ohair@274 5 A full OpenJDK repository set (forest) should also include the following
ohair@274 6 6 nested repositories:
ohair@274 7 "jdk", "hotspot", "langtools", "corba", "jaxws" and "jaxp".
ohair@274 8 There are also several source downloads for the jax* repositories that
ohair@274 9 will be needed.
ohair@274 10
ohair@274 11 This one root repository can be obtained with something like:
ohair@274 12 hg clone openjdk7
ohair@274 13 To make sure you have all the nested repositories, you can run:
ohair@274 14 cd openjdk7 && sh ./
ohair@274 15 (This is identical to using the Mercurial Forest Extension command
ohair@274 16 'hg fclone openjdk7').
ohair@274 17 People unfamiliar with Mercurial should read the first few chapters of
ohair@274 18 the Mercurial book:

ohair@274 31 2. Check the sanity of doing a build with your current system:
ohair@318 32 make sanity
duke@0 33 See README-builds.html if you run into problems.
duke@0 34
ohair@274 35 3. Do a complete build of the OpenJDK:
ohair@318 36 make all
duke@0 37 The resulting JDK image should be found in build/*/j2sdk-image
duke@0 38
ohair@318 39 where make is GNU make 3.81 or newer, /usr/bin/make on Linux usually
ohair@318 40 is 3.81 or newer.
