Building JavaXPCOM requires an installed JDK.
- Macintosh builders will normally have the JDK pre-installed.
- Windows and Linux users can download the Sun JDK from http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/download.jsp.
To enable building the JavaXPCOM components, you must build the "java" extension. This is normally accomplished with the following flag in your mozconfig file:
The configure code must be able to find the installed JDK. You must either set the <tt>JAVA_HOME</tt> environment variable to point to the directory of your JDK installation, or specify the additional configure flag:
ac_add_options --with-java-include-path=dir ac_add_options --with-java-bin-path=dir
Note: If you are building on Mac OS X and you do not specify the <tt>--with-java-include-path</tt> or <tt>--with-java-bin-path</tt> configure flags, the build defaults to <tt>/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Headers</tt>.
