Reviewed-by: ohair

duke@2 1 README:
ohair@276 2 This file should be located at the top of the OpenJDK Mercurial root
ohair@276 3 repository. This root repository will include a "make" directory,
ohair@276 4 and a Makefile for building the entire OpenJDK.
ohair@276 5 A full OpenJDK repository set (forest) should also include the following
ohair@276 6 6 nested repositories:
ohair@276 7 "jdk", "hotspot", "langtools", "corba", "jaxws" and "jaxp".
ohair@276 8 There are also several source downloads for the jax* repositories that
ohair@276 9 will be needed.
ohair@276 10
ohair@276 11 This one root repository can be obtained with something like:
neugens@359 12
neugens@359 13 hg clone openjdk8
neugens@359 14
neugens@359 15 To make sure you have all the nested repositories, you can run the
neugens@359 16 script located in the same respository as this file:
neugens@359 17
neugens@359 18 cd openjdk8 && sh ./
neugens@359 19
ohair@276 20 People unfamiliar with Mercurial should read the first few chapters of
ohair@276 21 the Mercurial book:

duke@2 23 See for more information about the OpenJDK.

duke@2 25 Simple Build Instructions:
ohair@276 26
ohair@276 27 0. Get the necessary system software/packages installed on your system, see
neugens@359 28
duke@2 29
ohair@276 30 1. If you don't have a jdk6 installed, download and install a JDK 6 from
duke@2 31
ohair@276 32 Set the environment variable ALT_BOOTDIR to the location of JDK 6.
duke@2 33
ohair@276 34 2. Check the sanity of doing a build with your current system:
ohair@320 35 make sanity
duke@2 36 See README-builds.html if you run into problems.
duke@2 37
ohair@276 38 3. Do a complete build of the OpenJDK:
ohair@320 39 make all
duke@2 40 The resulting JDK image should be found in build/*/j2sdk-image
duke@2 41
ohair@320 42 where make is GNU make 3.81 or newer, /usr/bin/make on Linux usually
ohair@320 43 is 3.81 or newer.
