Developer information

Build status

Build Status Maven Central

Environment setup

I'm using:

  • IntelliJ 15 Ultimate (thanks to JetBrains for the license)
  • Maven 3.3.9

You can also use Eclipse. I tried

  • Eclipse 4.5.0 (Mars)
  • Say yes to all the plugins an m2 connectors to install

To configure your local workspace:

  • Import the Maven parent project to Eclipse or IntelliJ
  • Import the Eclipse formatting file EasyMock-formatter.xml (usable in Eclipse or IntelliJ)

To build EasyMock with Maven

There are three different levels of build.

Build without any active profile

It is a basic compilation of the application.

mvn install

Full build

This build will check code coverage using Jacoco, run findbugs and validate that the license headers are correctly set.

mvn install -PfullBuild

Deploy build

This is the build to launch to deploy to the surefire repository. It assembles the application and add the gpg checksum. You will usually launch it on top of the full build.

The command line will ask you to give the passphrase for the gpg private key.

mvn install -PdeployBuild

To compile EasyMock in Eclipse

  • Install m2e
  • Import the EasyMock Maven parent project to your Eclipse workspace

To compile EasyMock in IntelliJ

  • Import the EasyMock Maven parent project as an New IntelliJ project

To update the versions

  • mvn versions:set -DnewVersion=X.Y -Pandroid,bench
  • mvn versions:commit -Pandroid,bench if everything is ok, mvn versions:revert -Pandroid,bench otherwise

Configure to deploy to the Sonatype maven repository

  • You will first need to add something like this to your settings.xml
  • Then follow the instructions from the site below to create your key to sign the deployed items


To build the maven site (with findbugs, checkstyle, jdepends and JavaNCSS reports)

  • You will to give enough memory to maven with 'set MAVEN_OPTS=-Xmx512m' (or setting it as environment variable)
  • Then type mvn site

To check dependencies and plugins versions

mvn versions:display-dependency-updates versions:display-plugin-updates -Pall

To download the sources associated to our dependencies

mvn dependency:resolve -Dclassifier=sources

To update the license

mvn validate license:format -Pall

To run Sonar

mvn clean org.jacoco:jacoco-maven-plugin:prepare-agent test sonar:sonar


  • Install the Android SDK
  • Configure a device (real or simulated)
  • Add an ANDROID_HOME to target the Android SDK
  • Add $ANDROID_HOME/platform-tools to your path
  • Activate the debug mode if it's a real device
  • mvn install -Pandroid

To bundle EasyMock and deploy

    <name>Nexus Release Repository</name>
  • Release the repository. It will be synced with Maven Central Repository
  • Announce to gitter, tweet and blog ;-)

Deploy the website

  • In local:
    • Go to the EasyMock root directory
    • Make sure the website directory is clean
    • ./deploy-website.sh

Start next version
