General Build Requirements

Requirement Description
Java JDK Java Implementation compatible with JDK 1.5 or JDK 1.6. OpenJDK is supported as well.
Perl Perl 5. For the regular build Mdiles Archive:Zip and XML:Parser are required. For committing changes to the repository Crypt:SSLeay and SOAP:Lite are also required.
Apache Ant Ant 1.7
Archiver zip and unzip
gperf gperf tool
Mozilla1 Some Mozilla libraries are needed. Choose one of the following:
  • Get the source from here.2
  • Get prebuild libraries from here.3

1. If you are a new developer, don't use the libraries. By using the --disable-mozilla switch for ./configure you waive the extra functionality.
2. Copy the package into $SRC_ROOT/moz/download. The ./configure script will detect the source being present.
3. You have to configure with --disable-build-mozilla to enable the use of the prebuild libraries. Place LINUXGCCI{inc,lib,runtime}.zip into $SRC_ROOT/moz/zipped. The files can be reused if the packages were build following the instructions of the previous point. In the latter case they can be found in $SRC_ROOT/moz/ of a successful build.
