Re: OpenJDK for Mac

At the present time there is no support for building on Mac from the  
OpenJDK6/7 project.

However, a while ago Landon Fuller got a build of the JRL JDK6 source  
BSD port.

You can download binaries here:

http://landonf.bikemonkey.org/static/soylatte/

The binaries will run 32bit on 10.4 & 10.5, or 64bit on 10.5, but  
only on the latest Intel machines.

Also, the port is using X11 to render graphics, so it won't "look"  
anything like the Apple JDK.

So the short story is, there's a kinda hack-ish version of OpenJDK6  
available, that works on a limited amount of machines.

I was not able to successfully build this project from his sources.

I have emailed him several times, but he has not replied. I believe  
he is extremely busy with his startup at the moment.

I am interested in working on getting OpenJDK to run as a native Mac  
app, but at present I do not have the technical experience to  
organize this project. But if you're interested in working on this,  
we should start communicating regularly and start to gather critical  
mass.

Re: OpenJDK for Mac

Yes. That is the goal of OpenJDK, to port it to many different  
platforms. They already have support for Windows, Solaris, and  
various Linux versions. There are some external projects that have  
ported the JDK 6 source code that was under the JRL license to BSD,  
FreeBSD, and other Unix variants.

They will eventually merge the code Landon Fuller contributed from  
SoyLatte to the OpenJDK 6 source code, and then we'll be able to  
start working on the Mac port in earnest.

Re: IRC logging of #openjdk

Hello Brian,
yes the responses were a little surprising to me as well. When I first  
read your proposal my reaction was "sure, why not". Then reading the  
responses from Mark, the Andrews and others on how we use the channel  
and the nature of communication there I started to think the  
spontaneity and free-form flow of the conversations are very valuable  
and it would be a pity if we lost that.

Onno.

Re: Project Proposal: BSD port

I'm trying to clarify my understanding of what this means for a Mac- 
native version of OpenJDK.

One of the implementation details of this project will be, for  
example, the addition of a "BSD" directory under .../jdk/src/, to go  
along with the existing "linux", "solaris", "windows", folders.

Is this correct?

So one could download OpenJDK and build it on a Mac (with the  
suitable hardware and OS version), and run it there as well? But this  
would be totally in "unix" land, e.g., using X11 for the UI, BSD  
libraries for the system calls, etc?

Is this correct?

If so, what would be the logical next steps (after this project has a  
stable build) in order to add a native Mac OS X port to the OpenJDK,  
using for example, native Cocoa code (or Core Graphics?) for  
rendering the UI?

I'm not an AWT guy, but Roman Kennke and Mario Torre hacking on the 
Cacciocavallo project may be able to help figure out how to plug into 
the existing architecture.

Re: IRC logging of #openjdk

Interestingly enough, we had the same sort of experience with our  
local Java study group. The idea was suggested that we record our  
meetings as either a real-time web stream or for a video podcast. I  
thought it was a great idea, because members that couldn't physically  
make it might still be able to participate over the internet, and it  
would be a great archive of our discussions, and hopefully attract  
more people. But many others were uncomfortable with the idea, even  
when we discussed just recording audio only. They felt it would  
stifle their ability to speak freely.

So it's not an uncommon human reaction.
