This page give some information about the layout of Apache DS 1.5 trunks, and try to explain how it is built.
The actual project hierarchy is the following (as of 1.5.5-SNAPSHOT) :
This hierarchy represent the projects being built.
You must have installed Maven 2.0.9 and have a JDK 5 installed on your computer. A working internet connection is also mandatory.
|If the build hangs or you get an out of memory exception please increase the heap space:
MAVEN_OPTS="-Xmx256m" mvn clean install
Download and install Maven 2.0.9. (ATTENTION !!! Do NOT use an older version of Maven )
Add a MAVEN_HOME environment variable and add MAVEN_HOME/bin to your system path:
On a Linux box you could add the following to the .bashrc file (.bashrc is a file you'll find in your home directory)
Windows users, use Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Environment Variables
There may be some issues with older JDK versions and Kerberos, therefore we recommend using a version >=1.5.0_09
To download the sources, you must have installed a Subversion client.

With read/write access (for committers only) :
|The following information is only needed if one want to setup its own maven repo. There is no need to define a settings.xml file for generic usage. |
Before building the trunks, you must configure Maven 2 to use the snapshot repository for Apache. Snapshot repositories are typically configured per user at ~/.m2/settings.xml. The following example, added to your settings.xml, will add a profile for the Apache snapshot repository.
You may either specify the profile at the command-line, each time you use 'mvn', or you may configure the profile to always be active.
To use a profile at the command-line:
To specify the 'apache' profile to always be active:
Now, we can compile the project.
The command is simple :
|Issue Commands From Top|
You must make sure you build the shared, installers, and daemon project modules in addition to the apacheds module to prevent problems with stale Maven SNAPSHOT jars in the snapshot repository from causing compilation errors. This can be guaranteed by performing all Maven operations above in the top directory that you checked out: the apacheds-trunk directory.
A lot of plugins will be downloaded. If you are curious, you can then look at .m2/repository to see what has been downloaded on this step.
Building should finish with these lines:
|If you want to do really safe build, run the following commands in trunks:|
Building the installers is a two phase process :
That's it, the jars will be find in target/images/apacheds-1.5.?
SNAPSHOT<XXXXXX>-setup.jar where XXXXXX is your local system and ? is the feature release minor number for the 1.5 branch.
The directory apacheds-trunk/installers/apacheds-noarch contains a script for Linux (apacheds.sh) and one for Windows (apacheds.bat) which can be used for starting the server without the need to install it first (as non-root-user on Linux and non-Windows-service on Windows).
To run integration tests, just use the following command :
To build the .project and .classpath files for eclipse, type the following commands :
(The last command is necessary because eclipse:eclipse purge the target directory, and we need some generated files which has been removed. This is why we do another *mvn clean installù in the boostrap-partition module
then import all the existing project which has been created.
Don't forget to declare a classpath variable named M2_REPO, pointing to ~/.m2/repository, otherwise many links to existing jars will be broken.
You can declare new variables in Eclipse in Windows -> Preferences... and selecting Java -> Build Path -> Classpath Variables
Add an eclipse-apacheDS.sh file in your eclipse root directory, to allow eclipse to get more memory (e.g. 750MB)
You may also declare a specific workspace when launching eclipse. I have created a workspace-apacheDS directory in my HOME directory, where all the ApacheDS project is built when I use Eclipse.
Launch eclipse :
