Source code development is being done on your local machine using Maven.

Unit and functional testing is performed on your local machine using JUnit. There is no integration testing concept available yet.


Before you can start, your environment must meet the following prerequisites:
  • Installed Maven
  • J2SE 1.4.X (and JAVA_HOME pointing to it)

Build Command

To build the project please use the following:

maven jar

CVS Tags

Valid tags are called rel-x-y-z.

Create Distribution Package


To create a distribution simply lauch:

maven dist

This goal creates all distribution files.

The results are always written to ./target/distributions.

Checklist for Distribution

While Developing

  • Create changes, test it
  • create a snapshot for everybody to use, communicate it
  • maven jar:deploy-snapshot
  • define code freeze date, communicate it
  • implement changes told you from others, create SNAPSHOT
  • maven jar:deploy-snapshot

Freeze Date is here

  • check for version number change in project.xml
  • check documentation (changes.xml, HISTORY.txt, README.txt, Release Notes, etc.)
  • check maven ttdist for correctness
  • check if there are SNAPSHOT dependencies, change them to a released version
  • everything is in cvs now?
  • create a version tag in cvs, e.g. "rel-1-1-0"
  • create the distribution: maven jar:deploy, maven dist:deploy, maven mydist:deploy

Eclipse Integration

To use/edit this project in eclipse do the following:

maven eclipse

NOTE: The local maven repository must be referenced using the MAVEN_REPO variable. This property must me set once for each eclipse installation. (See sample below)

In Eclipse: Windows - Preferences - Java - Build Path - Classpath variables, add a variable:

MAVEN_REPO =  your maven repository

On Windows, you set the local maven repository location by saving a file build.properties in the directory where %USERPROFILE% is pointing at. The content of the file can be as follows:

	# maven.junit.format=plain
	# maven.junit.usefile=false
