Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-2732) Update README build instructions for more Maven heap
Date Fri, 25 Apr 2014 15:02:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-2732?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13981083#comment-13981083
] 

Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-2732:
---------------------------------------------

I'd rather not see the README become a tutorial on maven, especially if it starts making assumptions
about a user's build environment (maven version, maven's own resource requirements, or jvm
execution paths, etc.). Even in build instructions, we have to make some assumptions that
a user is familiar with the build tools or can debug build tool problems with documentation
on the build tool itself. MAVEN_OPTS is not an accumulo build option, it's a maven configuration
option, so I don't think it should go here.

I agree with [~busbey] that this would be more suitable in a contributor guide (specifically,
one on the website, or in a wiki).

> As the Accumulo code base grows, Maven needs more heap available in order to build. Currently,
256 MB appears to be enough, which is more than the default.
> The README should be updated to suggest configuring Maven with more heap, e.g.: add {{MAVEN_OPTS=-Xmx256m}}
to .mavenrc. This will help out folks who aren't Maven experts get a successful build.
