eXo Platform Public Distributions

How to build ?

Pre-requisite : Apache Maven >= 3.0.4

To build the Platform Community Tomcat Standalone package, from the root directory just launch :

mvn install

Take a coffee, a tea, whatever you like the time that Maven downloads the earth and then you'll have the result in plf-community-tomcat-standalone/target/platform-community-<<CURRENT_VERSION>>/platform-community-<<CURRENT_VERSION>>

If you are using a Maven Repository Manager you need to proxify our repository https://repository.exoplatform.org/public/ (snapshots and releases).

If you are using a mirror in your maven settings you need to exlude our repository identifier repository.exoplatform.org if your mirror don't proxify it.

Build options

Add -Dskip-archive in your build command line to not generate the final zip archive (and thus gain few seconds of build).

TIP : Your build will be faster (~40%) using a JDK7. It will be also faster if you use Apache Maven >= 3.1.

How to launch ?

From the top level directory of the project oou can launch the server you just generated with :


Use -h or --help to list all options.
