I am trying to get Graal set up in Eclipse so that I can build and single step through the code.
Following the instructions in https://wikis.oracle.com/display/OpenJDK/Instructions I ran "mx ideinit".
However, I don't see a .project file generated in the top directory. I created a new Eclipse project and imported all the directories at the top level, but the integration wasn't as seamless as I expected.
For example, I get several errors like:
AMD64FloatRegisters cannot be resolved (AMD64FloatRegister.java)
Cannot make a static reference to the non-static field Tester_Class (Test6712835.java)
many_loader cannot be resolved to a type (bug_21227.java)
It looks like I may have to configure Eclipse to pick up on dependencies that have been manually specified in the mx/projects file.
Can someone explain the proper way to configure the Eclipse environment? I looked around for additional documentation but the above link was all I found.
