Build the plugin

In order to simply build the project, do the following:

     git clone
     cd jbosstools-hibernate-search
     mvn clean verify -DskipTests

-DskipTests is needed, because currently there are still some problems with tests.


Do the following steps to configure your Eclipse workspace:

  1. Set target platform. Here you can read information about it. Shortly:
  2. Get the code of target platform: [] (
  3. Checkout the branch you need (currently, I use 4.60.x)
  4. Build the target platform
  5. Open in Eclipse and click "Set as Target Platform"
  6. Hibernate-Search tools need Hibernate tools to be in Eclipse workspace. In its turn, Hibernate tools need [jbosstools-base (common module)] ( in workspace. That's why you can get the code and import them as maven projects step-by-step, or watch the video, attached to to import everything automatically.
  7. Get the code of Hibernate Search tools and import it into the eclipse workspace
  8. Build jbosstools-base (common) module, then build Hibernate tools, and olny after that try "clean verify" on the current project (Hibernate Search Tools), add skip tests if you want to build everything quicker.
  9. Right-click on Hibernate-Search tools project -> Run as... -> Eclipse Application. It must start a new Eclipse instance with working HSearch plugin.
