OpenSlide Java

This is a Java binding to OpenSlide.

Build requirements

  • JDK
  • Apache Ant
  • OpenSlide >= 3.4.0

Building on Linux or Mac OS X

make install

Cross-compiling for Windows with MinGW-w64

PKG_CONFIG=pkg-config \
    PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/path/to/cross/compiled/openslide/lib/pkgconfig \
    ./configure --host=i686-w64-mingw32 --build=$(build-aux/config.guess)
make install

For a 64-bit JRE, substitute --host=x86_64-w64-mingw32.

Building on Windows

Ensure that the path to the openslide-java source tree does not contain whitespace.

Install Cygwin, selecting these additional packages:

  • make
  • pkg-config
  • mingw64-i686-gcc-core and/or mingw64-x86_64-gcc-core

(Cygwin is only needed for the build environment; the resulting binaries do not require Cygwin.)

Also install a JDK and Apache Ant.


./configure --prefix=/path/to/install/dir \
    --host=i686-w64-mingw32 --build=$(build-aux/config.guess) \
    PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/path/to/openslide/lib/pkgconfig" \
    JAVA_HOME="$(cygpath c:/Program\ Files/Java/jdk*)" \
make install

For a 64-bit JRE, substitute --host=x86_64-w64-mingw32.
