How to Build Mustang with VS.NET 2003
MS VS.NET 2003:
The Microsoft Visual Studio.NET 2003 Professional Edition compiler, can also be used for building the JDK 6.0. The compiler and other tools are expected to reside in the location defined by the variable VS71COMNTOOLS which is set by the Microsoft Visual Studio.NET installer.
It is highly recommended that you run VCVARS32.BAT (usually found in C:\"Program Files"\"Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003"\Vc7\bin\VCVARS32.BAT) to set MSVCDIR, INCLUDE, LIB, and the PATH prior to building the JDK.
If your compiler resides in a place other than the default, you can set ALT_COMPILER_PATH to point to the location of the cl compiler binary. If you are using MS VS.NET 2003 then you don't need to set ALT_MSDEVTOOLS_PATH variable. The compiler and tools binaries must be in the PATH.
