How to build the source

The normal Roller build creates a product generically suitable for use several
application containers, however see the Roller Install guide for application server
specific configuration information.

After pulling the source tree and changing directory to its top level, as
indicated above, the following command will build and run all unit tests:

   mvn clean install

After doing that, you should find the newly built Roller webapp, suitable
for use in app/target/roller. 

To build Roller, subsequently run "mvn clean install" from the assembly-release
folder.  After that, you'll find Roller distribution files in 


Building other versions of Roller

If you wish to pull a branch other than the trunk, replace the word
"trunk" in both lines above with the appropriate branch name.  Note that
versions of Roller before 5.0 have an Ant-based build.  In general, you should
be able to follow instructions accompanying the sources that you pull in order
to build that version.
