Bugs and feature plannings are tracked in the Jira
TAVERNA component Taverna Server. Feel free
to add an issue!

Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects.
While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.
- Java 1.8
- Apache Maven 3.2.5 or newer (older versions probably also work)
To build, use
mvn clean install
This will build each module and run their tests.
You should then find
taverna-server.war in the folder
To skip the tests (these can be timeconsuming), use:
mvn clean install -DskipTests
If you are modifying this source code independent of the Apache Taverna project, you may not want to run the Rat Maven plugin that enforces Apache headers in every source file - to disable it, try:
mvn clean install -Drat.skip=true
This distribution includes cryptographic software. The country in which you currently reside may have restrictions on the import, possession, use, and/or re-export to another country, of encryption software. BEFORE using any encryption software, please check your country's laws, regulations and policies concerning the import, possession, or use, and re-export of encryption software, to see if this is permitted. See http://www.wassenaar.org/ for more information.
The U.S. Government Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), has classified this software as Export Commodity Control Number (ECCN) 5D002.C.1, which includes information security software using or performing cryptographic functions with asymmetric algorithms. The form and manner of this Apache Software Foundation distribution makes it eligible for export under the License Exception ENC Technology Software Unrestricted (TSU) exception (see the BIS Export Administration Regulations, Section 740.13) for both object code and source code.
The following provides more details on the included cryptographic software:
- Taverna Server's
CertificateChainFetcheruses Java Secure Socket Extension (JSS) to pre-fetch certificates of SSL-secured web services accessed by Taverna workflows.
- Taverna Server's support for propagating username/password credentials in
SecurityContextFactoryrelies on BouncyCastle bcprov encryption library and Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) to generate a keystore for Taverna Command-line tool. The JCE Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy may need to be installed separately.
- Taverna Server may interact with the credential manager support in Apache Taverna Command-line Tool to provide a keystore of client credentials and trusted certificates for SSL-secured web services.
- After building, the
taverna-server-webapp/target/taverna-server.warwill include dependencies that are covered by export restrictions, including:
BouncyCastle bcprov encryption library, Apache HttpComponents Core and Client, Apache Derby, Jetty, Apache WSS4J, Apache XML Security for Java, Open SAML Java, Apache Taverna Language, Apache Taverna OSGi, Apache Taverna Engine, Apache Taverna Common Activities, and Apache Taverna Command-line Tool.
