Provides a harness to build the source code from using Free Software build tools




IcedTea software provides a harness to build the source code from using Free Software build tools and provides replacements for the binary plugs with code from the GNU Classpath project.

How To Build:

We have temporarily made the decision to remove the ECJ support. The

–with-icedtea option has been made default.

Now, IcedTea bootstraps against a system installed IcedTea or a previously built version of IcedTea.

To get started on a Fedora 7 GNU/Linux system with yum:

$ sudo yum –enablerepo=development install java-1.7.0-icedtea mercurial cups-devel lesstif-devel libXp-devel libXtst-devel libXi-devel xalan-j2 xerces-j2 libXt-devel libgcj freetype-devel gcc gcc-c++ wget java-1.5.0-gcj-devel alsa-lib-devel firefox-devel glib2-devel gtk2-devel ant libXinerama-devel


$ hg clone
$ cd icedtea

Full build instructions are in INSTALL, but this works:

$ ./configure
$ make

For all other distributions, it is mandatory that you have another version of IcedTea built (b19 or less). The tarballs for all the releases are available here:

$ ./configure

$ make

When this completes you’ll have a usable IcedTea in openjdk/control/build/linux-i586 or openjdk/control/build/linux-amd64.
