openjdk-8

README:
   This file should be located at the top of the OpenJDK Mercurial root
   repository. A full OpenJDK repository set (forest) should also include
   the following 6 nested repositories:
     "jdk", "hotspot", "langtools", "corba", "jaxws"  and "jaxp".
 
   The root repository can be obtained with something like:
     hg clone http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk8/jdk8 openjdk8
   
   You can run the get_source.sh script located in the root repository to get
   the other needed repositories:
     cd openjdk8 && sh ./get_source.sh
 
   People unfamiliar with Mercurial should read the first few chapters of
   the Mercurial book: http://hgbook.red-bean.com/read/
 
   See http://openjdk.java.net/ for more information about OpenJDK.
 
 Simple Build Instructions:
   
   0. Get the necessary system software/packages installed on your system, see
      http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk8/jdk8/raw-file/tip/README-builds.html
 
   1. If you don't have a jdk7u7 or newer jdk, download and install it from
      http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp
      Add the /bin directory of this installation to your PATH environment
      variable.
 
   2. Configure the build:
        bash ./configure
   
   3. Build the OpenJDK:
        make all
      The resulting JDK image should be found in build/*/images/j2sdk-image
 
 where make is GNU make 3.81 or newer, /usr/bin/make on Linux usually
 is 3.81 or newer. Note that on Solaris, GNU make is called "gmake".
