I'm trying to figure out what parts of the neojava directory belongs to OOo and what parts belong to neooffice. Is it basically everything in the "build" subdirectory after it's finished compiling?

Also - which build.* files need to be delete (or kept) to control rebuilding of the OOo portion? That is, what build.* file do I want to delete to force a rebuild of the OOo portion - or leave it if I don't want to rebuild it at all?

Correct

Just look at the makefile. The build.* files match to makefile target names (I touch the target name at the end of each target instead of relying on the file dates of the source code. Also, just following the target dependency chain backwards through the makefile to gain an understanding of the build order.

If you are not familiar with makefiles, I would highly recommend that you learn now because the entire OOo build has very complicated make files (far more complicated than my very simple make file) and modifications of the OOo make files has been a very necessary task for us in certain cases.

Note that the stuff in the "build" subdirectory after things finish is not a "pure" OOo...the tag downloaded is in the makefile and after downloading we fix bugs in the core code by applying the patches in the "patches/openoffice" subdirectory. While most of our fixes can be done by deriving individual modules, some things that affect the size of data structures, actual compilation of OOo itself and the like need to be pushed prior to the OOo build.

Patrick's advice to start looking at makefile lingo is really spot on. You also may want to start getting somewhat familiar with shell scripting (sh) and sed as they're both used frequently in our own makefile.

Reading through the makefile is actually where I got most of my knowledge of neooffice - I just wanted to verify that it was correct. Thank you.
