I am trying to build java 1.5(mustang) on windows using cygwin and visual studio. I found no documentation on the sunsite which uses cygwin.

have managed to get the compile started.
But it aborts giving the following error

RC : fatal error RC1109 : error creating /cygdrive/c/DOCUME~1/Administrator/build/control/make//../build/windows-i586/tmp/java/hpi/windows_threads/obj/hpi.res

Seems rc.exe is not able to create hpi.res.

Googling around says that occurs because of write permission
error. I am able to touch a file in the directory.

What seems to be the problem?
Could anybody point me to a url, or possibly a short tutorial which mentions the steps for successfully building java.

Thanks in advance.

Take a look at Kelly's writeup:
[b] Building the JDK 6.0 on Windows XP[/b] http://blogs.sun.com/roller/page/kto?entry=building_the_jdk_6_0

Also - you will get more readers if you post any follow up messages to the appropriate forum. When it comes to building the snapshot source releases, that would be:
