1 README:
2 This file should be located at the top of the OpenJDK Mercurial root
3 repository. A full OpenJDK repository set (forest) should also include
4 the following 6 nested repositories:
5 "jdk", "hotspot", "langtools", "corba", "jaxws" and "jaxp".
6
7 The root repository can be obtained with something like:
8 hg clone http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk8/jdk8 openjdk8
9
10 You can run the get_source.sh script located in the root repository to get
11 the other needed repositories:
12 cd openjdk8 && sh ./get_source.sh
13
14 People unfamiliar with Mercurial should read the first few chapters of
15 the Mercurial book: http://hgbook.red-bean.com/read/
16
17 See http://openjdk.java.net/ for more information about OpenJDK.

19 Simple Build Instructions:
20
21 0. Get the necessary system software/packages installed on your system, see
22 http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk8/jdk8/raw-file/tip/README-builds.html
23
24 1. If you don't have a jdk7u7 or newer jdk, download and install it from
25 http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp
26 Add the /bin directory of this installation to your PATH environment
27 variable.
28
29 2. Configure the build:
30 bash ./configure
31
32 3. Build the OpenJDK:
33 make all
34 The resulting JDK image should be found in build/*/images/j2sdk-image
35
36 where make is GNU make 3.81 or newer, /usr/bin/make on Linux usually
37 is 3.81 or newer. Note that on Solaris, GNU make is called "gmake".
