This page describes how to create a recipe for a pre-existing Java project or library that is not currently available in OpenEmbedded or Jalimo. It assumes a basic working knowledge of OpenEmbedded and Java tools such as javac. An example library will be built from sources: Concierge, an OSGi framework.


Before proceeding with this howto, you'll need to verify that your OpenEmbedded build environment is working properly. This falls into two categories, the core BitBake system and the OpenEmbedded recipes, and the Java tools that are built inside of OpenEmbedded.

General Open Embedded

After installing OpenEmbedded, go to the root of the installation and run bitbake to confirm your environment is working properly:

$ bitbake
NOTE: Handling BitBake files: \ (5485/5485) [100 %]
NOTE: Parsing finished. 5249 cached, 0 parsed, 236 skipped, 0 masked.
NOTE: Cache is clean, not saving.
Nothing to do.  Use 'bitbake world' to build everything, or run 'bitbake --help'
for usage information.
