Welcome to JNode!
In this file, you find the instructions needed to setup a JNode development environment.
JNode has been divided into several sub-projects in order to keep it "accessible". These sub-projects are:
JNode-All The root project where everything comes together
JNode-Cli Various command line commands
JNode-Core The core java classes, the Virtual Machine, the OS kernel and the Driver framework
JNode-Distr Tools and apps needed for a JNode "distribution"
JNode-FS The Filesystems and the various block device drivers
JNode-GUI The AWT implementation and the various video & input device drivers
JNode-Net The Network implementation and the various network device drivers
JNode-Shell The Command line shell and several system commands
JNode-Sound Future work
JNode-Textui Text based AWT interface
Each sub-project has the same directory structure:
<subprj>/build All build results
<subprj>/descriptors All plugin descriptors
<subprj>/lib All sub-project specific libraries
<subprj>/src All sources
<subprj>/.classpath The eclipse classpath file
<subprj>/.project The eclipse project file
<subprj>/build.xml The Ant buildfile
<subprj>/build-tests.xml The Ant buildfile for running all tests of this subproject
JNode is usually developed in Eclipse. (It can be done without)
The various sub-projects must be imported into eclipse. Since they reference each other, it is advisably to import them all at the same time
Import -> Existing projects into workspace.
On Windows: build.bat cd-x86-lite
On Linux: build.sh cd-x86-lite
Or in Eclipse, execute the "cd-x86-lite" target of all/build.xml.
The build will result in the following files:
all/build/cdroms/jnode-x86-lite.iso bootable CD image
all/build/cdroms/jnode-x86-lite.iso.vmx VMWare configuration file
On VMWare: Open
all/build/cdroms/jnode-x86-lite.iso.vmx and click Start.
