Building hdfview?


#1

We're currently using a platform for which pre-built binaries for HDFView are not available (Solaris-x86) and need to build it ourselves.

I've located the page with links to the source for some of the jar/jni files here:
http://www.hdfgroup.org/products/java/hdf-java-html/

though the link to HDFView goes to the binaries only (I'm pretty sure I've seen the source somewhere).

Are there any special instructions for building the package? The binary installs include a lot of things like scripts, a JVM and so on to make it run.

John,

At the bottom of the page is a link to building hdfview with cmake;
http://www.hdfgroup.org/products/java/release/cmakebuild.html

The necessary files and instructions for building from source are there.
If you need any further clarification, just ask.

Thanks for the reply. I'm not very familiar with cmake, and I don't see a solaris platform configuration file, SPARC or otherwise. Will one be necessary?

Hi,

I recently tried to build hdf-java and noticed a small error in the instructions:

http://www.hdfgroup.org/products/java/release/cmakebuild.html

It says that the HDF-Java source code SHOULD be uncompressed, but in fact the platform configuration files linked to on that page will by default try to check out the source code from SVN. This failed for me because I don't have svn installed (I use Mercurial). Alternatively, there is another option to use a compressed archive instead of SVN checkout, in which case the build script will extract the archive. So in either case the source code should not be uncompressed.

Dan,

You're correct - the source should be NOT uncompressed. I will get that
corrected.

Thanks,
