OpenJDK Build on Netbeans with Windows / Solaris - Part IV
By vaibhavc on Dec 07, 2007
So its all done for Windows. Now coming on to Solaris, here the work is little less in compare to Windows(the same is valid for Linux as well, can be a excuse for me as I don't have Linux machine right now). Here is the list of downloads:
-> OpenJDK - Same link as mentioned in the previous blog (download the Solaris part, we have worked on Solaris x86)
-> Binary Plugin - Download from here.
-> CUPS Header - Download the latest cups from here.
NOTE: CUPS is Common Unix Printing System. It is doing a smart job of putting browser information into a printable format. I mean you don't have to worry about how printing is going to happen, it will be taken care by CUPS.
-> FreeType - Download from the same link provided in the previous blog. Any of the platform independent version will work for us.
-> jtreg - jtreg can be downloaded from the same link from where you are downloading OpenJDK. jtreg is a test suite that contains tons of testcase. Responsibility is to write a safe code and code change will not screw anything.
Thats it ! I am assuming that you have Netbeans 6+ and JDK 1.7 and JDK 1.6 binaries installed with you.
Now setting the build.properties file. Its very small in comparison to windows. Here it is:
// this is important because code contains many
//line which work on if(OPENJDK==true) code
All done. Time to fire the build. More likely you will face the same problem what we have mentioned for Windows. If you are lucky enough then you will get the message "BUILD SUCCESSFUL"
(If I missed some step, please follow as it is in previous blog)
