Build Instructions for JSS 4.2Newsgroup: mozilla.dev.tech.crypto
Before building JSS, you need to set up your system as follows:
- Follow the Build Instructions for NSS 3.11.4 Release,
- 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. We suggest you use the latest.
- In order to build JSS, you must have the Java Cryptography Extension
These classes have been incorporated into JDK 1.4 and later, so if you are
using one of these versions of the JDK, you don't have to do anything for
If you are using an earlier version of the JDK, download and install the JCE from Sun's page. When building, set the JCE_JAR environment variable to the path of the JAR file (such as jce1_2_1.jar) contained in the JCE distribution.
- You must have Perl version 5.005 or later.
- Switch to the appropriate directory and check out JSS from the root of your source tree.

Setup environment variables needed for compiling Java source. The
JAVA_HOMEvariable indicates the directory containing your Java SDK installation. The
JCE_JARvariable indicates the location of the JAR file containing the JCE; this is only necessary if you are using an SDK version earlier than 1.4. The
JDK_VERSIONvariable is currently only needed on Linux; it should be set to "1.4" if the SDK is version 1.4 or later.
setenv JAVA_HOME /usr/local/jdk1.2.2 (or wherever your JDK is installed)Windows NT
setenv JCE_JAR " "; setenv JDK_VERSION "1.4"(if you are using JDK version >= 1.4) setenv JCE_JAR /usr/local/jce1.2.1/lib/jce1_2_1.jar (if you are using JDK version < 1.4)
