Hi Luke, 

Beside what Robin mentioned, I also want to say that:

1) Relationship between Dacapo benchmarks and the application they exercise. Each dacapo benchmark exercise one application. The application code is not controlled and not part of Dacapo benchmark. So, I guess what you want to get is the source code of those applications. Just as same as you, Dacapo has to download them from their websites.


2) The links Dacapo used for downloading applications are controlled by those applications. These links may be changed (they are changed quite often), and they don't tell Dacapo they have changed. So, if you care those source code, please check which links Dacapo use. If links are broken, you have to figure out where are those source code by your self.

Regards.

If you run the ant build, it will download the benchmark source before
building each benchmark.  The source file archive will be left in
bms/<benchmark>/download, and the source tree will be in
bms/<benchmark>/build.  There are more instructions in README.txt.

Note that building the dacapo suite from source is not entirely
straightforward, due to the sometimes conflicting requirements of each
benchmark.

Cheers,
Robin
