gvNIX install guide
This document details the steps to install gvNIX version 1.X.
To start with gvNIX you need:
JDK 1.6 or JDK 1.7 ( http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html )
Maven 3.2 or above ( http://maven.apache.org/download.html )
Internet access so that Maven can download required dependencies
Install Spring Tool Suite (STS)
Install STS 3.6.2. Go to https://spring.io/tools/sts/all and follow the instructions.
Install Roo Extension
Spring Roo is not longer included on STS distributions.
To include Roo Support on your STS, follow the next instructions:
Install gvNIX Support
Finally, install and setup gvNIX as default Roo support:
Download the latest gvNIX version from http://www.gvnix.org
Unzip downloaded file. For example, in Unix and Apple systems:
bash:$HOME/software$ unzip gvNIX-X.X.X-RELEASE.zip
After unzip the file a new folder called gvNIX-X.X.X-RELEASE will be created (from now on we will refer to it as $GVNIX_HOME instead).
Run STS and go to Window > Preferences.
In the new window browse to Spring > Roo Support. Press Add and write a name for the configuration, then press Browse... button and navigate to gvNIX folder (note if you have followed every single step, it should be at $GVNIX_HOME).
Once you have selected gvNIX folder, you can see gvNIX version in Version: field.
After pressing OK in parent windows you will complete gvNIX installation in your computer.
