Download the latest zip file of the booksource files and unzip it. Install the class JAR file in your CLASSPATH. Or download just the files you need.
You can download the latest version of the source code for all the examples in
the book from the book web site, http://javacook.darwinsys.com. You will get
two files. First is the source code, in a file called
javacooksrc.jar, which you should unzip
someplace convenient or wherever
you like to keep source
code. Second is a file called
com-darwinsys-util.jar, which you need to set in
your CLASSPATH (see Section 2.6) or
JDKHOME/jre/lib/ext directory. The files are
roughly organized in per-chapter directories, but there is a lot of
overlap and cross-referencing. Because of this, I have prepared a
cross-reference file named
There is also a mechanically generated file called
index-byname.html, which you can use if you know
the name of the file you want (and remember that Java source files
almost always have the same name as the public class they contain).
The canonical index file,
index.html, links to both these files.
Once you’ve set your CLASSPATH, you can
compile. In most directories you can
simply say javac *.java or jikes
. Of course, not everybody likes
typing those commands, so there is a makefile for the
make utility. make is
standard on Unix and readily available for MS-Windows from, for
GNUwin32 project (see http://sourceforge.net/projects/gnuwin32/). There is
also a top-level makefile that visits the subdirectories and runs
make in each of them. These makefiles have been
tested with gmake (GNU make
3.79.1), BSD make (OpenBSD 2.8), and they should
work with almost any reasonably modern make
program or equivalent.
There may also be times when you don’t want to download the entire archive -- if you just need a bit of code in a hurry -- so you can access those index files and the resulting directory, for “anyplace, anytime access” on the same web site.
