User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0) Build Identifier: Need JSS native library for Mac OS X or make script Reproducible: Always
Joaquin: we've never built JSS on Mac OS X. It should not be hard to make it build and run, but we need to spend some time to try it and fix any problems we find. I'd like to know exactly what you need. Would you like us to provide an official JSS native library for Mac OS X, or would you like to be able to build JSS on Mac OS X yourself?

I would like to be able to build JSS on Mac OS X myself. NSS has been built on MAC OS X, what is the problem with JSS?
Could you try to build JSS on Mac OS X and post the build failures here? I believe that you will need to at least add a MacOSX section to mozilla/security/coreconf/jdk.mk. You should be able to model it after the Linux (or some other OS) section in that file. None of our JSS-based applications need to support Mac OS X, so we don't need to build JSS on Mac OS X. It should not be hard to port JSS to Mac OS X, and I hope you can help us do that. Here is what the Linux section in mozilla/security/coreconf/jdk.mk looks like: # set [Redhat Linux] platforms ifeq ($(OS_ARCH), Linux) JAVA_CLASSES = $(JAVA_HOME)/jre/lib/rt.jar ifeq ($(JRE_HOME),) JRE_HOME = $(JAVA_HOME) JRE_CLASSES = $(JAVA_CLASSES) else ifeq ($(JRE_CLASSES),) JRE_CLASSES = $(JRE_HOME)/lib/rt.jar endif endif PATH_SEPARATOR = : # (2) specify "header" information JAVA_ARCH = linux INCLUDES += -I$(JAVA_HOME)/include INCLUDES += -I$(JAVA_HOME)/include/$(JAVA_ARCH) # no JIT option available on this platform JDK_JIT_OPT = endif So you need to add a section for MacOSX. The most important part is the -I pathnames we add to INCLUDES. To do this work, check out the tip of JSS: cvs co mozilla/nsprpub cvs co mozilla/dbm mozilla/security/dbm cvs co mozilla/security/coreconf mozilla/security/nss cvs co mozilla/security/jss You need to set the environment variable JAVA_HOME to be the pathname of the JDK. To build JSS, do this: cd mozilla/security/nss gmake nss_build_all cd ../jss gmake
Created attachment 212801 [details] [diff] [review] CVS Diffs for OS X JSS support With these changes, I'm able to build JSS on OS X 10.3.9.
Created attachment 213135 [details] [diff] [review] CVS Diffs for OS X JSS support, v2 I regenerated Nathan's patch against the current JSS tip and without the -t option to cvs diff. (The -t option helps code review but makes it impossible to apply the patch with the 'patch' command.) Nathan, does the JDK on Mac OS X have the $(JAVA_HOME)/../Classes/classes.jar file instead of the $(JAVA_HOME)/jre/lib/rt.jar file? It's strange to have the ".." in the pathname.
Attachment #212801 - Attachment is obsolete: true
Wan-Teh: The classes.jar file does replace the rt.jar file on OS X. Unfortunately, this jar does not exist inside of JAVA_HOME. It is one level above the JAVA_HOME location, so we have to use ".." in the pathname to get the proper jarfile.
What is the status on getting this patch reviewed and checked into the tree?
Comment on attachment 213135 [details] [diff] [review] CVS Diffs for OS X JSS support, v2 r=wtc. I checked in the patch on the JSS trunk. Checking in coreconf/jdk.mk; /cvsroot/mozilla/security/coreconf/jdk.mk,v <-- jdk.mk new revision: 1.19; previous revision: 1.18 done Checking in jss/lib/config.mk; /cvsroot/mozilla/security/jss/lib/config.mk,v <-- config.mk new revision: 1.21; previous revision: 1.20 done I believe we also need the coreconf change in this patch checked in on NSS_3_11_BRANCH because Sun builds the JSS trunk using the coreconf from NSS_3_11_BRANCH.
Comment on attachment 213135 [details] [diff] [review] CVS Diffs for OS X JSS support, v2 Sun doesn't build JSS on Mac, to the best of my knowledge. I don't have access to a Mac, and I can't verify that the content of this patch is correct. r+ if you have tested this patch.

Resolution: --- → FIXED
Target Milestone: --- → 4.2.5
I tested a JSS trunk build (with NSPR_4_6_BRANCH and NSS_3_11_BRANCH) on Mac OS X 10.4.3. I set the environment variable JAVA_HOME to /Library/Java/Home. (I didn't install Java, so I am using either the built-in Java or the latest version obtained by Software Update.) I verified that both changes in the patch are required to build JSS. I also found that more changes are needed to run the JSS test suite (mozilla/security/jss/org/mozilla/jss/tests/all.pl) on Mac OS X. Let's do that in a separate bug report.
