1COMPILING JEDIT FROM SOURCE 2 3To compile jEdit, you will need: 4 5- Jakarta Ant. I use version 1.5; older versions might or might not 6 work. Get it from <http://jakarta.apache.org>. 7 8- A Java compiler, such as Sun's javac or IBM's jikes. 9 10- (Optional) To build the HTML version of the documentation: 11 12 - DocBook-XML 4.1.2 DTD and DocBook-XSL 1.54.1 (or later) stylesheets 13 (<http://docbook.sourceforge.net>). 14 - An XSLT processor, such as Xalan (<http://xml.apache.org>) or 15 xsltproc (<http://xmlsoft.org/XSLT/>). 16 17- (Optional) To build the PDF version of the documentation: 18 19 - DocBook-XML 4.1.2 DTD and DocBook-DSSSL 1.76 (or later) stylesheets 20 (<http://docbook.sourceforge.net>). 21 22 - OpenJade 1.3 and OpenSP 1.3.4 (or later) 23 (<http://openjade.sourceforge.net>). 24 25 - A TeX implementation that includes PDF output capability. 26 27Once you have all the necessary tools installed, run the 'dist' target 28in the build.xml file to compile jEdit. If you want to build the docs, 29first edit the `build.properties' file to specify the path to where the 30DocBook XSL stylesheets are installed, then run the 'docs-html-xalan' or 31'docs-html-xsltproc' target. 32 33* A note about JDK versions 34 35The Jikes compiler from IBM seems to have a problem where code compiled 36against JDK 1.4 does not work under JDK 1.3. Sun's javac does not have 37this problem. 38 39If plan on running jEdit under both 1.3 and 1.4, I recommend you compile 40it using javac.
