Q: How to compile java programs with SableVM?
A0: SableVM is a Java Virtual machine, not a compiler...
A1: Under Debian there's a "jikes-sablevm" equivalent of "javac"
command, so you can simply do: $ jikes-sablevm HelloWorld.java
to get your HelloWorld.class file.
A2: In absence of "jikes-sablevm" one should do:
$ export BOOTCLASSPATH=/path/to/sablevm's/libclasspath.jar
and then use jikes directly:
$ jikes HelloWorld.java
A3: IIRC the latest sablevm-svn gentoo packages include JAVA_HOME-like
directory, in /usr/lib/sablevm, so once this package is installed
you can use programs in /usr/lib/sablevm/bin just as in Sun's JDK.
Q: How do I run java programs with SableVM?
A1: The simplest way is to use 'java-sablevm' command which is
parameter-compatible with Sun's 'java' command.
A2: In our SableVM's JAVA_HOME (once you have installed a SableVM
version/package that provides it) you have 'bin/java' command you can
use as in Sun's JDK.
I wish I could give you some URLs, but ATM my inet connection breaks
every few seconds and I'll be lucky if I manage to simply send this
email. I hope others can provide more details and/or corrections.
Hope this helps,
