Procedures for building ICU4J data from ICU4C data:
*Setup*
In the following,
$icu4c_root is the ICU4C root directory
$icu4j_root is the ICU4J root directory
$jdk_bin is the JDK bin directory (for the jar tool)
1. Download and build ICU4C. For more instructions on downloading and building
ICU4C, see the ICU4C readme at:
http://source.icu-project.org/repos/icu/trunk/icu4c/readme.html#HowToBuild
(Windows: build as 'x86, Release' otherwise you will have to set 'CFG' differently below.)
*NOTE* You should do a full rebuild after any data changes.
1a. If you didn't download from GitHub, you will also need the "icu4c-*-data.zip" file. Unpack this file and replace the icu/source/data directory's contents with the contents of the data directory from the zip file.
2. Step 2 depends on whether you are on a Windows or a Unix-type
platform.
*Windows*
2a. On the command line, cd to $icu4c_root\source\data.
2b. On the command line,
nmake -f makedata.mak ICUMAKE=$icu4c_root\source\data\ CFG=x86\Release JAR="$jdk_bin\jar" ICU4J_ROOT=$icu4j_root icu4j-data-install
Continue with step 3 below, in Java:
*Linux*
$icu4c_build is the ICU4C root build directory,
which is $icu4c_root/source in an in-source build.
(in other words, $icu4c_build is where you ran runConfigureICU or configure)
2c. On the command line, cd to $icu4c_build/data
2d. Do
make JAR=$jdk_bin/jar ICU4J_ROOT=$icu4j_root icu4j-data-install
(You can omit the JAR if it's just jar.)
Continue with step 3, in Java:
Step 2 on either platform will produce two files: icudata.jar and
icutzdata.jar in $icu4j_root/main/shared/data.
*Java*
3. After the ICU4C-side steps above, build the main target of the
ICU4J ant build to unpack the jar files with the following commands:
cd $icu4j_root
ant main
