Developing and Compiling OpenOpal
Using an IDE
Nevertheless, compiling and executing the software in a shell is also supported using Makefiles as build system.
Compiling in a Shell
Two platforms are currently tested:
- Linux: A typical standard implementation of Linux with a Java JDK should contain all required programs for compiling and running OpenOpal.
- Windows: Cygwin (R) is used to compile OpenOpal on Windows(R) platforms.
Compiling on other platforms has not been tested.
Creating the Makefile
The Makefile is automatically generated by the script createMakefile. In a shell, go to the subfolder openopal/trunk and execute:
to list the possible actions.
Compiling the Source Code & Executing OpenOpal
For Linux systems enter
$ make javac $ make gui
to compile and start OpenOpal in GUI mode.
For Windows systems enter
$ make javac_cygwin $ make gui
