Building java-libglom from the source code
We suggest using jhbuild.
java-libglom uses autotools, so you can use the standard configure and make commands to build it from a tarball. If you are building from git then you will need to run autogen.sh instead of configure. Note that you'll need to use ./configure --enable-maven-install so that gwt-glom can find the installed files later.
Alternatively, you can let jhbuild do it for you:
Building java-libglom with jhbuild
Before we start, we need to set the jhbuild configuration file for java-libglom. Download the java-libglom jhbuildrc with this command:
And move it to the location expected by jhbuild:
mv jhbuildrc-java-libglom .jhbuildrc
Use this command to build java-libglom and it's dependencies:
This should take a few minutes so now's a good time to grab a coffee or tea.
When this has finished, you should run the unit tests and example application with this command to ensure everything is OK:
jhbuild shell cd ~/gnome/sources/java-libglom make check
You should see these lines near the bottom of the output:
================== All 2 tests passed ==================
If you don't see information indicating that all tests have passed, something is wrong with java-libglom and you will have to resolve the problem before you can continue.
