0. JDK requirement:
Building DaCapo requires latest JDK 8.
JDK 9 is currently not supported (some benchmarks will fail with error).
If building PMD and/or DayTrader,
make sure JDK 7 is also installed and
it's path set in file.
See 3 below.
1. Set your JAVA_HOME environment variable appropriately:
On Mac OS X something like:
export JAVA_HOME=/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_151.jdk/Contents/Home/
On Ubuntu 16.04 something like:
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.8.0_151/
Building DaCapo requires JDK 8,
certain benchmarks (ie. PMD, TradeBeans, TradeSOAP)
require JDK 7 and/or 9 to build.
Set relavent paths in file.
See 3 below.
2. Set ant and maven environment variables if necessary. In particular,
for some jvms it is necessary to explicitly request a larger heap size.
