+Apache ACE
+==========
+
+Apache ACE is a software distribution framework that allows you to centrally manage and distribute
software components, configuration data and other artifacts to target systems. It is built
using OSGi and can be deployed in different topologies. The target systems are usually also
OSGi based, but don't have to be.
+
+Go to the website for more information about ACE:
+http://incubator.apache.org/ace/
+
+
+Building from source
+--------------------
+
+Prerequisites
+
+ - Java 6 SDK
+ - Maven 2.2.1
+
+
+Building the full source distribution
+
+For convenience, when we do a full distribution of all the components that make up Apache
ACE, we also release a component that contains all the sources. This helps you get started
with the source code of the project more easily. You need an artifact called 'ace-release-full',
which you unzip and then build like this:
+
+mvn install
+
+
+Building all artifacts at once
+
+Another way to build the full project, is to download all the individual source components
that make up Apache ACE, unzip each of them (they should all extract into their own folder)
and then at the top level, build the project like this:
+
+mvn -r install
+
+Note: this does not work with Maven 3 (which does not have the -r option)
+
+
+Building a single artifact
+
+The final way to build the project, is by building a single source component. You can do
that as long as you have the dependencies that are required by this project installed in either
your local Maven cache, or in the repository at Apache. Getting all dependencies in your local
Maven cache can be done by either downloading and installing them by hand (if you actually
run Maven and a dependency is missing, it will explain you how to do that) or by doing a full
source build once. Building the artifact is done like this:
+
+mvn install
+
+
+Getting Started
+---------------
+
+Detailed instructions on how to proceed once you've built the whole project, can be found
on the Apache ACE website:
