library(jasper) is used to embed Java in a SICStus
development system or runtime system, the runtime linker needs to
be told where to find the Java libraries (e.g.
libjvm.so). During installation, InstallSICStus will build
either the sicstus executable or the
jasper foreign resource
so that it contains the necessary
information; the details are platform dependent.
If you use spld to relink SICStus or to build a
runtime system, you can use the command line option
--resource=-jasper (note the minus sign).
This tells spld to include the search
path (rpath) in the executable needed to ensure that
library(jasper) can find the Java libraries.
If you want to run sicstus with another Java than what was specified during installation, you can use spld without the --resources option to get a SICStus executable without any embedded Java paths. In this case, you need to set the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH (or similar) appropriately. One example of this is to use the JDK 1.5 server version instead of the default (client) version.
