JIGS generates full code for the java wrappers into a specific
directory, which we call the wrapper directory. By default, this
directory is called JavaWrapper (or
JavaWrapper_debug if you are compiling with debugging
enabled), but you can change the name of the directory by simply
setting the WRAPPER_DIR_NAME variable in your
GNUmakefile. This is not very common.
To determine if the wrappers are to be rebuilt or not, JIGS keeps a
stamp file in the wrapper directory.
Everything which is inside the wrapper directory is automatically
generated - this means that
- you can always remove the wrapper directory without loosing anything,
since you can always regenerate the wrappers;
- you should not edit or modify directly the contents of the wrapper
directory, because when the wrappers are recreated, the content of the
directory is destroyed.
