Running Oddjob

Running Oddjob is one double click. The user guide here will tell you where.

Building From Source

To build Oddjob - you use Oddjob.

Oddjob must be run with tools.jar on the classpath. On Windows if JAVA_HOME points to a JDK this can be achieved from the command prompt with:

"%JAVA_HOME%"\bin\java -jar run-oddjob.jar -cp "%JAVA_HOME%"\lib\tools.jar

When the build completes you should find an archive identical to your original download in the oddjob/oj-assembly/work/ojdist directory.
