Building Javalib


We recommend you to install every required library and Ocaml version with opam.

Configuration and installation

Configuring and installing Javalib from sources is pretty simple. In the main repository, execute

 $ ./
 $ make
 $ make install

If you want to verify that Javalib is correctly installed and found by ocaml, this command should find the library path

 $ ocamlfind query javalib

To clean the sources, run

 $ make clean

To remove the library from your system, just do

 $ make remove

If you want to generate the documentation, run

 $ make doc

You can clean the doc with

$ make cleandoc
