NOTE $SOURCE_CODE is where you installed the source code to. If you are using the AdoptOpenJDKVMBuild then this is /home/openjdk/sources If you are using YourOwnEnvironment then it's likely to be something like /home/<your username>/sources
Once all of the packages are installed, execute make images
cd $SOURCE_CODE ; cd jdk9; make clean images;
'With the new build system, its no long needed to be navigate to the ../common/makefiles folder, you can run make from the root (i.e. $SOURCE_CODE/jdk9). If you like verbose output then you can replace the last line with:
make clean images LOG=debug
A log file by the name build.log will be created in the $SOURCE_CODE/jdk9/build/linux-x86_64-normal-server-release folder, the linux-x86_64-normal-server-release folder will differ from system-to-system as it is based on a number the OS, Architecture and type of system you are building.
NOTE: If you are using the AdoptOpenJDKVMBuild then this can take at least 40 minutes to complete.
NOTE: If you are using the YourOwnEnvironment then this is a lot faster, depending on your hardware (~10 minutes on a modern MBP).
NOTE: See make command arguments for build performance optimisation if you want to speed up your build.
NOTE: In case of error messages from the compiler when running the build please look at the Known issues section for solutions to these issues.
