Development Tools

Java Compilers

A java development kit (JDK) contains the java compiler required to build the PKI java-tools, the PKI console, or the CA, DRM, OCSP, or TKS subsystems. Select the appropriate JDK based upon the operating system being utilized.

Fedora 8

The CA, DRM, OCSP, and TKS subsystems, PKI java tools, and PKI console require the Java Development Kit (JDK) IcedTea Open JDK 1.7 javac compiler to be used:

yum install java-1.7.0-icedtea-devel

To insure that the appropriate version of javac has been selected, become the root user, and run the following /usr/sbin/alternatives command to verify that this javac has been selected. For example:

/usr/sbin/alternatives --config javac

There are 2 programs which provide 'javac'.

  Selection    Command
-----------------------------------------------
*+ 1           /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-icedtea/bin/javac
   2           /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-gcj/bin/javac

Enter to keep the current selection[+], or type selection number:
IMPORTANT:   Additionally, be sure that the JAVA_HOME and CLASSPATH environment variables are unset in the user's command-line shell, and that the PATH environment variable does not reference a javac executable that is different than the one set by the /usr/sbin/alternatives command. This can be checked by running the command which javac which should return /usr/bin/javac and/or the command javac -version which should return the expected Java compiler version.

Fedora Core 6 and Fedora 7

The IBM Java JDK 5.0 is required to build most PKI subsystems. Please download the jpackage format (i.e. pxi32dev-20070511-jpackage.tar.gz) version from the following URL:

After downloading the package, install the following RPM package:

  • java-1.5.0-ibm-devel-1.5.0.5-1jpp.{arch}.rpm
NOTE:  

Currently, all components except pki-util and pki-console can be compiled using gcj. Although Sun's J2SE 5.0 could be used to build all components, changes to the existing spec files of the pki-util and pki-console components would be necessary to use this particular JDK.

To insure that the appropriate version of javac has been selected, become the root user, and run the following /usr/sbin/alternatives command to verify that this javac has been selected. For example:

/usr/sbin/alternatives --config javac

You will see output like this:

There are 2 programs which provide 'javac'.

  Selection    Command
-----------------------------------------------
   1           /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.4.2-gcj/bin/javac
*+ 2           /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-ibm/bin/javac

Enter to keep the current selection[+], or type selection number:
IMPORTANT:   Additionally, be sure that the JAVA_HOME and CLASSPATH environment variables are unset in the user's command-line shell, and that the PATH environment variable does not reference a javac executable that is different than the one set by the /usr/sbin/alternatives command. This can be checked by running the command which javac which should return /usr/bin/javac and/or the command javac -version which should return the expected Java compiler version.

C/C++ Compilers

Additionally, the low-level JNI libraries (osutil and symkey), the PKI native-tools, and the TPS subsystem require C and C++ compilers. The following two packages can easily be installed via Fedora's development yum server:

  • gcc 4.1.2 or later
 yum install gcc
  • g++ 4.1.2 or later
 yum install gcc-c++
