jdk-5 error while building android source code
Hi, i am trying to build linux kernel for android emulator(Eclair version). i have downloaded the android source code, and also "$repo sync" was successful. now for Building, when i try to execute "$make" command i get the following error.
PLATFORM_VERSION_CODENAME=REL PLATFORM_VERSION=2.1-update1 TARGET_PRODUCT=generic TARGET_BUILD_VARIANT=eng TARGET_SIMULATOR= TARGET_BUILD_TYPE=release TARGET_ARCH=arm HOST_ARCH=x86 HOST_OS=linux HOST_BUILD_TYPE=release
Checking build tools versions...
You are attempting to build with the incorrect version of java.
Your version is: /bin/bash: java: command not found. The correct version is: 1.5.
Please follow the machine setup instructions at http://source.android.com/download
build/core/main.mk:111: * stop. Stop.
i had open-jdk6 and sun-jdk-6 installed, now for building android source, it needs sun-jdk-1.5. for this i tried to install sun-jdk-1.5 from the .bin file, but the default JVM is not initialised to jdk-1.5, and i am not able to do it. i uninstalled open-jdk-6 but i couldnt remove sun-jdk-6. i have installed sun-jdk-6 from a .bin file from oracle/downloads.
i am following steps from below link
please tell me how can i uninstall jdk-6 and set the default jvm path to sun-jdk-5. or is there any other way to set the default jvm.. please help.
The warning is misleading:
JDK 1.6 works as well as JDK 1.5. Sun Java should work as well as Open Java (although, personally, I'd recommend Sun Java). Gnu Java (the default on many distros) will *not* work for Android.
The solution is to modify your $PATH variable so that the commands "java" and "javac" work from the command line.
Once that's taken care of, your build should work.
'Hope that helps .. PSM
