Here are the answers to some questions you might have about this project
and this release.
1). What is required to build/install/run?
GNU Classpath requires a working GNU build environment and a byte code
compiler such as jikes, gcj or kjc. When creating native code you will
also need a working C compiler and up to date Gnome development libraries
(gtk+, libart and gdk-pixbuf). More information on the precise version
numbers for the tools and libraries can be found in the INSTALL file.
2). What platforms are supported?
GNU/Linux is the only platform that has been tested. We plan to
eventually support many others.
3). Who should use this software?
Although it is already capable of supporting many Java applications,
this is a development release. As such, there are still many unfinished
components, and some problems are to be expected. You should install it
if you are interested in Classpath development or reporting bugs. We
4). Where do I go for more information?
