Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-3985) Replace BUILDING.txt with a simlified up-to-date BUILDING.html
Date Wed, 10 Dec 2008 16:16:44 GMT
Replace BUILDING.txt with a simlified up-to-date BUILDING.html
--------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: DERBY-3985
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3985
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Build tools
    Affects Versions: 10.5.0.0
            Reporter: Rick Hillegas


At this point, BUILDING.txt contains a number of mis-statements. It is structured in a way
which makes the Derby build look complicated and intimidating. The build instructions need
to be thoroughly overhauled and divided into two main sections:

1) The simple build instructions for people who are new to the community. This will be a build
with few pre-requisites which just works out of the box.

2) Trickier build instructions for people who want compile-time checks for the different platforms
which Derby supports.

While we're at it, I suggest that the revised instructions live in an html file rather than
a flat text file. I think this will result in a document that is more readable and easier
to navigate.
