Introduction

JREq is used for all the Epeios Java components. It makes the connection between the JRE and the dynamic library which contains the true code of the component.

JREq works with GNU/Linux (and probably other POSIX compliant operating systems), macOS and Windows, on IA-32, AMD64 and ARM (AArch32 and AArch64, like those on Raspberry Pi, Banana Pi, ODROID… devices) architectures.

Installation

As JREq uses the Java Native Interface, to build it simply apply the instructions in the dedicated tutorials to the content of the GitHub repository given above. You may to set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to the root path of the JDK.

Looking at the AppVeyor (Windows) and Travis CI (POSIX) links above may also be useful.

There are Windows binariez available under the releases section of the before already mentioned GitHub repository.

The resulting binary must be used with the jreq.xcfg and jreq.xlcl files, which are in the GitHub repository, in the directory from where you launch the program.

Usage

There is a Java file which comes with this tool. It's only useful for the developer to make some basic test JREq. Looking at it may give some indication how JREq works.

Each Epeios Java component comes which its own Java files, which will load JREq.

Configuration

You should not have to modify the configuration file.

See also the configuration related page.
