JIF (Java Information Flow) Compiler Building Using Ant in ubuntu and windows

JIF Compiler Building Using Ant in ubuntu and windows:

JIF Compiler Building

  1. Ubuntu
  2. Windows

a. Ubuntu

I.            Download the JIF compiler from http://www.cs.cornell.edu/jif/

II.            Save in ur folder, in my case /home/mohsin/jif-3.3.1/

III.          Use the command $sudo unzip /home/mohsin/jif-3.3.1

IV.          Set the path of JIF Environment Variable using this command $export JIF=/home/mohsin/jif-3.3.1

V.            Now install Apache Ant, java-6-sun-1.6, g++ using command sudo sudo apt-get install Package_Name

VI.          After installing above programming software, set the following environment using following command

  1. export JIF=/home/mohsin/jif-3.3.1
  2. export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-
  3. export ANT_HOME=/usr/bin/ant
  4. export CLASSPATH=.
  5. export PATH=$JAVA_HOME:$PATH: $JIF/bin
  6. export CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH:$JIF/test/

VII.            Run $ ant configure; This ensures that the classpath is set appropriately, and creates the executable scripts $JIF/bin/jifc and $JIF/bin/jif.
VIII.         Run $ ant jif-runtime; This compiles the $JIF/rt-src directory. Some of the code in this directory is C++ code, and the compilation of this code is platform-specific. Jif requires the C++ compiler g++ to be available to compile this code.
IX.             Run $ ant; This compiles the $JIF/src, $JIF/sig-src and $JIF/lib-src directories. The resulting .class files for the source code in $JIF/src, $JIF/sig-src and $JIF/lib-src will be stored in $JIF/classes, $JIF/sig-classes and $JIF/lib-classes respectively.
X.              You are now ready to try out Jif

b. Windows

All the above steps are same; just for native lib execution by c++ compiler. We use Cygwin.
