Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-2732) Update README build instructions for more Maven heap
Date Fri, 25 Apr 2014 15:18:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-2732?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13981109#comment-13981109

Bill Havanki commented on ACCUMULO-2732:
----------------------------------------

If our build requires tweaks beyond stock Maven, it's a nice gesture to advise our users of
it. I'm thinking of folks who just want to do a build and don't (want to) know Java or Maven
well.

Short info in README + reference to something more is OK. I like Josh's idea of a separate
BUILDING file. I'm sure the implementer of this ticket will pick something and do a great
job with it!

> 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.
