Building on Windows
Get the sources and patches just like on any other platform:
mkdir davinci cd davinci hg fclone http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk7/jdk7 sources hg fclone http://hg.openjdk.java.net/mlvm/mlvm patches
The Junction tool can be used to create the filesystem links for the
junction sources\hotspot\.hg\patches patches\hotspot junction sources\jdk\.hg\patches patches\jdk
The patches in the patch repository are guarded so that only patches that satisfy certain conditions are applied. One of the guards is the most recent release tag from the source repository, it is the last entry in
cd sources\jdk hg qselect --reapply buildable testable jdk7-b25 cd ..\hotspot hg qselect --reapply buildable testable jdk7-b25
You can look at the
series files in the
patches directories to see which guards are available.
After this is done patches can be applied like this:
cd sources\jdk hg qpush
hg qpush -a can be used to apply all available patches.
