Merry Christmas (well down under it is)


Yes the documentation can be a little confusing.


Here is the way I am building (assuming you have all the preq tools, Maven,

subversion, cvs)


I have a file in my user root E:\Documents and

Settings\NIrving\ as follows




That file may not be necessary, but I have it due to unresolved dependencies

not being at I also have an environmental variable MAVEN_OPTS

with the following value, which seems to resolve some memory issues I was

having. This setting is for a machine with 1gig of ram.


-XX:PermSize=256m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m -Xmx640m


This is because some of the jars required do not appear to be in ibiblio. 


svn checkout geronimo

cd geronimo

svn update

maven -o m:fresh-checkout

maven new


if you get an error like 

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/mail/Authenticator 


Then take a look @ which

mentions that you have to delete the org.apache.geronimo.specs directory

from your maven local repository.


Have to rush off to Christmas breakfast, so I hope this helps out.
