3.3.5 Building Kawa under MS-Windows

Using the ant method is recommended for building Kawa under Microsoft Windows. You may get an error message "Out of environment space." See http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q230/2/05.ASP for a solution. Alternatively you can run the class org.apache.tools.ant.Main directly from the Ant jar.

The Kawa configure and make process assumes a Unix-like environment. If you want to build Kawa from source under Windows (95, 98, or NT), you could use a Unix empulation package, such as the free Cygwin. However, there are some problems with filenames that make this more complicated than it should be. It should be possible to build Kawa under Cygwin using gcj as descibed above.

The makekawa.bat script in the Kawa source distribution can be used for building Kawa under Windows, but it is no longer being maintained.
