Subject RE: latest build instructions
Date Mon, 15 Oct 2012 20:52:43 GMT
Hi Matt,
It should be really be fairly simple...  Feel free to give it a try and update the instructions
on the incubator page if you like.

Building and Running from Command Line:
Requirements: svn, java jdk 1.6+, maven 3.0.4+
1) svn co
2) mvn install
3)Optional to run the UIMA CAS Visual Debugger or Collection Processing Engine GUI:
cd ctakes-clincial-pipeline
mvn exec:exec -PrunCVD 
mvn exec:exec -PrunCPE

Building and Running from Eclipse IDE:
Requirements: Eclipse IDE 4.2.1+, java jdk 1.6+, subversive plugin (or svn equivalent with
appropriate svn team provider connectors), m2e plugin (or mvn equivalent)
Import Project > Maven > Checkout Maven Project from SCM 
Select all projects
Wait until Eclipse downloads and builds all of your projects.  The various build helpers should
run jcasgen and builds the projects for you (there shouldn't be a real need to run mvn install,
