Building JDK for RISC-V platforms


BishengJDK RISC-V has been tested only on QEMU-RISCV64 at linux x86 platforms (specifically, on Ubuntu 18.04).


Get RISC-V Toolchain source:

$ git clone --recursive https://github.com/riscv/riscv-gnu-toolchain


$ git clone https://github.com/riscv/riscv-gnu-toolchain
$ cd riscv-gnu-toolchain
$ git submodule update --init --recursive

Note that no extra work is required when building with gcc 9.2.0, and there may be some compilation problems with other compilers.

$ cd riscv-gcc
$ git checkout riscv-gcc-9.2.0


$ sudo apt-get install autoconf automake autotools-dev curl python3 libmpc-dev libmpfr-dev libgmp-dev gawk build-essential bison flex texinfo gpref libtool patchutils bc zlib1g-dev libexpat-dev

Build Toolchain (Linux, 64 bit)

$ ./configure --prefix=/opt/riscv
$ make linux

External Libraries

To build the whole JDK riscv port, extra libraries of riscv version are required:

  • ALSA
  • CUPS
  • Freetype2
  • Fontconfig
  • zlib
  • libuuid
  • libxml2
  • libpthread-stubs
  • libffi
  • X11
    • xproto
    • xtrans
    • xextproto
    • renderproto
    • xcb-proto
    • fixesproto
    • kbproto
    • recordproto
    • inputproto
    • xorgproto
    • libICE
    • libSM
    • libXau
    • libXcb
    • libX11
    • libXt
    • libXfixes
    • libXrender
    • libXext
    • libXi
    • libXtst
    • libXrandr

For the infomation of the cross-compilation of dependencies above, please refer to the compilation tips.


We can build QEMU from the source code, and it's highly recommended to use the lasted version:

# keep source tree clean, and build in a new directory
$ mkdir build && cd build
# set riscv64 target
$ bash ../configure --prefix=$PWD/riscv-qemu --disable-git-update --target-list=riscv64-linux-user,riscv64-softmmu
$ make && make install

Getting the source code

Getting the source code of BishengJDK riscv:

$ git clone -b risc-v https://gitee.com/openeuler/bishengjdk-11.git

Build JDK


Serveral standard packages are needed to build JDK.

On Ubuntu, executing the following command:

$ sudo apt-get install pkg-config build-essential zip unzip screen make autoconf libxext-dev libxrender-dev libxtst-dev libxt-dev libcups2-dev libfreetype6-dev mercurial libasound2-dev cmake automake

Boot JDK Requirements

Paradoxically, buidling the JDK requires a pre-existing JDK. This is called the "boot JDK". The boot JDK does not, however, have to be a JDK built directly from the source code available in the OpenJDK community. Make sure that there already exists another JDK for that platform that is usable as boot JDK.

The rule of thumb is that the boot JDK for building JDK major version N should be a JDK of major version N-1, so for building JDK 11, we need JDK 11 or JDK 10. However, the JDK should be able to "build itself", so an up-to-date build of the current JDK source is an acceptable alternative.

Build JDK

Refer to the following configuration:

# add riscv toolchain to path
$ export PATH=/path/to/riscv/toolchain/bin:$PATH
# configure && build
$ bash configure \
    --openjdk-target=riscv64-unknown-linux-gnu \
    --disable-warnings-as-errors \
    --x-includes=/riscv/toolchain/sysroot/usr/include \
$ make images

Before running the JDK, LD_LIBRARY_PATH may need to be set:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/path/to/riscv/toolchain/sysroot/lib:/path/to/riscv/toolchain/sysroot/usr/lib

Run java in QEMU user mode:

$ /path/to/qemu/bin/qemu-riscv64 /path/to/jdk/riscv64/bin/java -version




Binutils is required: Download Binutils

Build binutils & hsdis

Note: bfd_octets_per_byte() has 2 args since binutils 2.34, if you build hsdis with binutils >= 2.34, hsdis.c may need be modified like that:

-  dinfo->octets_per_byte = bfd_octets_per_byte (abfd);
+  dinfo->octets_per_byte = bfd_octets_per_byte (abfd, NULL);

Build binutils from the source code:

$ cd build && mkdir linux-riscv64 && cd linux-riscv64
$ export PATH=/path/to/riscv/toolchain/bin:$PATH
$ CFLAGS = '-fPIC -O' ../binutils-version/configure --disable-nls --host=riscv64-unknown-linux-gnu
$ make

Build hsdis-riscv64:

# PWD is src/utils/hsdis
$ make demo BINUTILSDIR=build/binutils-2.35.1 ARCH=riscv64 CC=riscv64-unknown-linux-gnu-gcc

Test 'hsdis-riscv64' by 'hisdis-demo' on QEMU user mode:

# set LD_LIBRARY_PATH and execute hsdis-demo
$ /path/to/riscv/qemu/bin/qemu-riscv64 build/linux-riscv64/hsdis-demo

The outputs would like:

Hello World!
