Build Instructions for JSS 3.0Primary Newsgroup: mozilla.dev.tech.crypto
Alternate Newsgroup: mozilla.dev.tech.crypto
Before building JSS, you need to set up your system as follows:
- Follow the Build Instructions for NSS 3.2 Release
except for the following change:
Check out coreconf with the CVS tag
cd .. (cd ..\.. on Windows)
cvs co -r NSS_3_2_RTM mozilla/security/nss
cvs co -r JSS_3_0_RTM mozilla/security/coreconf
- To check that NSS built correctly, run all.sh (in mozilla/security/nss/tests)
and examine the results (in mozilla/test_results/security/computername.#/results.html.
- Install a Java compiler and runtime. JSS supports Java version 1.2 or later. For information on downloading and installing the java tools you need, go to the Sun Java Site and choose JDK from the pull-down menu labeled The Java Platform. On the next page you see, click the most recent release (currently "Java SDK Standard Edition, v. 1.3")
- Switch to the appropriate directory and check out JSS from the root of your source tree.
cvs co -r JSS_3_0_RTM mozilla/security/jss
- Windows Only: The shell invoked by gmake,
shmsdos.exe, is likely to crash when invoking some Java tools on Windows. The current workaround is to use some other shell in place of
shmsdos, such as
sh.exe, which should be distributed with the Cygnus toolkit you installed to build NSS. The change is unfortunately rather drastic: to trick gmake, you rename the shell program.
cd c:/Programs/cygnus/bin (or wherever your GNU tools are installed)Making this change will probably break other builds you are making on the same machine. You may need to switch the shell back and forth depending on which product you are building. We will try to provide a more convenient solution in the future. If you have the MKS toolkit installed, the sh.exe that comes with this toolkit can be used as well.
cp shmsdos.exe shmsdos.bak (backup shmsdos)
cp sh.exe shmsdos.exe (substitute alternative shell)
- Setup environment variables needed for compiling Java source.
setenv NS_USE_JDK_TOOLSET 1
setenv JAVA_HOME /usr/local/jdk1.2.2 (or wherever you installed the JDK)
set JAVA_HOME=c:\programs\jdk1.2.2 (or wherever you installed the JDK)
JAVA_HOME=/cygdrive/c/programs/jdk1.2.2 (or wherever you installed the JDK)
export NS_USE_JDK_TOOLKIT JAVA_HOME
- Build JSS.
cd mozilla/security/jss gmake private_export gmake
