By default, the JPype installation on Mac OS X will fail with a GCC error.
In order to successfully install it, some changes need to be made to the setup.py file:
- First, make sure you have some JDK (latest, preferred) installed
- Copy the root path of the latest JDK version you want to use (for example: /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.6.sdk/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6.0/)
- Edit the setup.py file, like so:
self.javaHome = '/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.6.sdk/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6.0/'
self.libraryDir = [self.javaHome + "/Libraries"]
self.javaHome + "/Headers",
self.javaHome + "/Headers/" + self.jdkInclude,
Now you can run the install successfully. Enjoy.
