NBIBuildRequiredSoftware

Tools to build NBI

  • Ant (known to work with 1.6.5, 1.7.0, 1.7.1)
  • JDK 5 (it also works with JDK6 but source level is everywhere set to 1.5)
  • To compile with JDK6 and let installer run only on Java6, add to ANT_OPTS environment variable : ANT_OPTS="-Djavac.source=1.6 -Djavac.target=1.6"
  • To compile with JDK6, and let installer with both JDK5 and 6, add to ANT_OPTS environment variable : ANT_OPTS="-Dunpack200.executable=<path-to-jdk5>/bin/unpack200.exe -Dpack200.executable=<path-to-jdk5>/bin/pack200.exe -Dverification.java.executable=<path-to-jdk5>/bin/java.exe"
  • Complilers to build launcher (windows only) and native library (all platforms):
  • Windows, cygwin tools - only launcher (32bit) and jnilib (32-bit) can be built with it
  • gcc (now using 3.4.4), windres (now using 2.18.50.20080625)
  • Windows, Microsoft tools - can be used to build launcher and native library for any platform (x86, amd64, ia64)
  • C/C++ Compiler, Resource Compiler, Linker and and Manifest Tool as part of Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition and Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 R2
  • Requires 3 environment variables to be set :

    •  %VC_2005% - Subdirectory 'VC' in the Visual C++ installation directory (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC)
    •  %VC_2005_PATH% - Subdirectory 'Common7\IDE' in the Visual C++ installation directory (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE)
  • Linux(x86, amd64)
  • gcc (now using 4.0.0)
  • Solaris (x86, amd64, sparc, sparcv9)
  • SunStudio compilers (now compilers from SS 12 are used - 2007/05/03) or GCC ones (not used now, not tested)
