BUILDING


You should be able to do "ant jar", and thereafter run the sample
like this:

  prompt% ant jar
  ...
  prompt% ./erl.sh -pa ./src/main/erl -noshell -s ring main
  ....
  {1267,799627,843000} Starting message, cycles=10000
  {1267,799638,52000} Around ring 10000 times 
  10000 == 10000 ... stop 
  Start={1267,799628,58000} Stop={1267,799638,54000} Elapsed=9996000us
  {1267,799638,69000} Starting message, cycles=10000
  {1267,799647,837000} Around ring 10000 times 
  10000 == 10000 ... stop 
  Start={1267,799638,74000} Stop={1267,799647,838000} Elapsed=9764000us
  {1267,799647,847000} Starting message, cycles=10000
  {1267,799657,644000} Around ring 10000 times 
  10000 == 10000 ... stop 
  Start={1267,799647,851000} Stop={1267,799657,649000} Elapsed=9798000us
  {1267,799657,662000} Starting message, cycles=10000
  {1267,799667,790000} Around ring 10000 times 
  10000 == 10000 ... stop 
  Start={1267,799657,665000} Stop={1267,799667,792000} Elapsed=10127000us
  {1267,799667,806000} Starting message, cycles=10000
  {1267,799677,486000} Around ring 10000 times 
  10000 == 10000 ... stop 
  Start={1267,799667,809000} Stop={1267,799677,488000} Elapsed=9679000us

You can compare this to a similar run for "BEAM" by running

  prompt% erl -pa ./src/main/erl -noshell -s ring main


The source for the few samples are in src/main/erl.

RUNNING

When running, it writes files named ".erj/${module}-${CRC}.jar".  These
files are written in response to erlang:load_module(Module,Binary).

These files also serve as a cache of files translated from beam -> jar.
If something goes astray, it may help to remove the .erj directory
forcing Erjang to recompile next time it runs.

PREREQUISITES

I have only been testing this with Erlang/OTP R13B02.

If you run with a different erts (Erlang runtime system), then you can 
use the +e <ErsVsn> flag, like this:

   ./erl.sh +e 5.7.5

To tun with erts-5.7.5.

To run the tests, you need an OTP distribution, and go edit src/test/java/erjang/AllTests.java
to tell it where your OTP_HOME is.



Cheers!
