I looked at my copy of Thinking in Java (2ed.) and did not see the
makefile in chapter 5...

Most folks I know use one of three options for Java Makefiles under
windows nt.
- GNUMake (See
- NMake.exe (Microsoft's version of make. Available from the
Microsoft C/C++ compiler.)
- Ant (Uses an XML build file as its Make file, i.e. not a standard makefile. See

I have used all three, and like Ant the best.
