How to work on this project

  1. Install and configure Maven2:

    sudo port install maven2

    Be sure to set the JAVA_HOME environment variable:

    export JAVA_HOME="/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6/Home"

    You'll know it's working when you get something like this:

    $ mvn -v
    Apache Maven 2.2.0 (r788681; 2009-06-26 06:04:01-0700)
    Java version: 1.6.0_15
    Java home: /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6.0/Home
    Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: MacRoman
    OS name: "mac os x" version: "10.6.1" arch: "x86_64" Family: "mac"
  2. Download and install Eclipse:

    (Eclipse 3.4 for Java SE is recommended, but you can use anything which supports the following plugins.)

    • Set the default JDK to 6.0 (Preferences > Java > Installed JREs)
    • Set the compiler to Java 1.6 (Preferences > Java > Compiler)
    • Set the default charset to UTF-8 (Preferences > General > Workspace)
  3. Install the Maven Eclipse plugin:

    Install Maven Integration for Eclipse, Maven POM Editor, Maven POM XML Editor.

    • Set Maven to download sources, if possible (Preferences > Maven)
  4. Check out the project.

  5. Make sure you have a working config file,, in the project directory. It should look something like this:


    N.B.: The ?zeroDateTimeBehavior=convertToNull is pretty important--it keeps MySQL's JDBC drivers from exploding when it encounters a date like 0000-00-00 00:00:00 (which technically shouldn't exist, but does in our database).

    If you don't know the username, password, or database name for your local
    MySQL database, check the config/database.yml file for your checkout of PFC.

  6. Run the tests:

    rake test
  7. Run the Maven Eclipse task to generate an Eclipse project:

    mvn eclipse:eclipse
  8. Import the Eclipse project into your Eclipse workspace (File > Import).

Running BRCM

  1. Add to your /etc/hosts file:  services.local
  2. rake run

  3. If you get an out-of-memory error try setting your MAVEN_OPTS environment variable to -Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m.

For Unsupervised Operations

If you're setting BRCM up to run on the Wesabe servers, be sure to configure that user's Maven to use the proxy:

Edit ~/.m2/settings.xml:


Deploying BRCM

To deploy BRCM, you will need:

  • Capistrano (gem install capistrano)
  • Grit (gem install grit)

Make sure you have net-ssh 2.0.14 or greater, otherwise deploying to multiple servers will hang.

To deploy BRCM to the staging environment:

cap staging deploy

To deploy BRCM to the production environment:

cap production deploy

To clean up the old installed versions of BRCM:

cap production clean
