Instructions for Building Apache ManifoldCF from Source

1. Download a source distribution of ManifoldCF, and unpack it.

2. Download the corresponding lib distribution of ManifoldCF, containing the binary
   dependencies, and unpack it.
3. Copy the lib folder in the lib distribution into the source distribution.

4. Download the Java SE 7 JDK (Java Development Kit), or greater, from
   You will need the JDK installed, and the %JAVA_HOME%\bin directory included
   on your command path.  To test this, issue a "java -version" command from your
   shell and verify that the Java version is 1.7 or greater.

5. Download the Apache Ant binary distribution (1.7.0 or greater) from
   You will need Ant installed and the %ANT_HOME%\bin directory included on your
   command path.  To test this, issue a "ant -version" command from your
   shell and verify that Ant is available.

6. If you want to build the site documents, check out, build, and install Apache Forrest
   version 0.9-dev or higher.
7. In a shell, change to the root directory of the source (where you find the outermost
   build.xml file), and type "ant" for directions.
