Subject Mac OSX build requirements
Date Tue, 17 May 2005 21:19:21 GMT

It took me just a bit of scratching to find the secret of building  
Derby in MacOS X. The BUILDING.txt file has nothing about it, and it  
took me a bit of work to find the post  
user@db.apache.org&msgNo=31 that explains enough of what I needed to  
do. It was clear enough that I could run derby on MacOS X but it wasn't  
obvious that I could develop on it.

I'd like to see the MacOS X information right up front, because I spent  
a bit of time trying to figure out how to get hold of a JDK 1.3.1  
environment, which isn't even necessary for MacOS X because when you  
install 1.4, you also get the 1.3.1 environment for Derby.

Is there already a place for this kind of operating-system-dependent  
information? If not, would BUILDING.txt be a good place for it?

I would be happy to write up a patch for BUILDING.txt or wherever it  
should be.
