This page contains some tips and tricks for working with Mercurial in the JMC Project for Committers. Note that this page is only relevant for JMC 7.x maintainers - JMC main development is happening in Git now.
- First install Mercurial (different on different platforms)
- Next ensure that you have an OpenJDK user (http://openjdk.java.net/census)
If you need an OpenJDK user name and/or generate a key, follow instructions here: http://openjdk.java.net/guide/producingChangeset.html#jdkUserName
- Next install the defpath plug-in (http://openjdk.java.net/projects/code-tools/defpath/)
- Next create a ~/.hgrc file and fill it out according to the example below.
Next clone the JMC source:
hg clone http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jmc/jmc
