5# SYNOPSIS
6#
7#   AX_PROG_JAVA
8#
9# DESCRIPTION
10#
11#   Here is a summary of the main macros:
12#
13#   AX_PROG_JAVAC: finds a Java compiler.
14#
15#   AX_PROG_JAVA: finds a Java virtual machine.
16#
17#   AX_CHECK_CLASS: finds if we have the given class (beware of CLASSPATH!).
18#
19#   AX_CHECK_RQRD_CLASS: finds if we have the given class and stops
20#   otherwise.
21#
22#   AX_TRY_COMPILE_JAVA: attempt to compile user given source.
23#
24#   AX_TRY_RUN_JAVA: attempt to compile and run user given source.
25#
26#   AX_JAVA_OPTIONS: adds Java configure options.
27#
28#   AX_PROG_JAVA tests an existing Java virtual machine. It uses the
29#   environment variable JAVA then tests in sequence various common Java
30#   virtual machines. For political reasons, it starts with the free ones.
31#   You *must* call [AX_PROG_JAVAC] before.
32#
33#   If you want to force a specific VM:
34#
35#   - at the configure.in level, set JAVA=yourvm before calling AX_PROG_JAVA
36#
37#     (but after AC_INIT)
38#
39#   - at the configure level, setenv JAVA
40#
41#   You can use the JAVA variable in your Makefile.in, with @JAVA@.
42#
43#   *Warning*: its success or failure can depend on a proper setting of the
44#   CLASSPATH env. variable.
45#
46#   TODO: allow to exclude virtual machines (rationale: most Java programs
47#   cannot run with some VM like kaffe).
48#
49#   Note: This is part of the set of autoconf M4 macros for Java programs.
50#   It is VERY IMPORTANT that you download the whole set, some macros depend
51#   on other. Unfortunately, the autoconf archive does not support the
52#   concept of set of macros, so I had to break it for submission.

57#   This is a sample configure.in Process this file with autoconf to produce
58#   a configure script.
