CACAO uses GNU Classpath as default Java runtime library and supports upstream releases or CVS snapshots. This release requires GNU Classpath 0.96 or higher to build and was tested against GNU Classpath 0.97.2 on a number of various platforms.
CACAO's ./configure has some options for Java runtime configuration, namely:
--with-java-runtime-library=<type> --with-java-runtime-library-prefix=<dir> --with-java-runtime-library-classes=<path> --with-java-runtime-library-libdir=<dir>
For detailed information, use ./configure --help.
Currently supported JIT compiler architectures are:
- m68k (broken)
