Full Version: Ibm Jikes Java Compiler For Zaurus

I went to the Zaurus software index to find a java development tool for my sl-6000 with Original SHARP ROM and Jeode JVM.

I found the IBM Jikes" java-compiler, and a foggy explanation about what was needed for Jikes to run. It says:

"...Also need JDK classes.zip"

I went to java.sun.com to download the current version of their JDK (5.0). Their Linux download was a 111 Mb *.bin file. (jdk-1_5_0_03-nb-4_1-linux.bin, 111.60 MB). Is this file supposed to contain the classes.zip file? As I do not have a desktop linux box currently, I cannot install the package to find out (and to me it sounds weird with *.zip-files in a linux-application).
If this is the correct way to find the classes.zip, could I then have someone with this JDK installed mail me the classes.zip, or upload it on the net or something like that?

By the way, can anyone recommend other good java compilers/IDE's for JAVA programming on the SL-6000l? (the "EIDE" for sl-5500 didn't work..)
I have (with no luck) tried to install a jeode ipk on OZ with GPE. That's one of the reasons why I went back to the old SHARP ROM. I'm willing to change ROM again, if well proven solutions for other ROM's exists.

Thanks for any help

It contains classes.zip, but that is not the version you would want to use because it is not compatible with the Zaurus. Your best bet would be to get blackdown linux 1.3 for the Zaurus and get its classes.zip

to get an idea of what has been done on pdaxrom (jdk1.3, jamvm jikes, IBM J9VM sableVM) read the following threads:

The only blackdown JDK for Zaurus I could find was a "blackdown-jdk_1.3.1_arm.ipk" from "Chris Double's Radio Weblog"
( http://radio.weblogs.com/0102385/2004/03/06.html )
Is this the file that should contain the classes.zip? If so, how do I extract it? I have tried installing it on my sl-6000l with original SHARP ROM. It failed. Can it be extracted without installing it in the first place?
