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 :

plf-community-tomcat-standalone/target/platform-community-<<CURRENT_VERSION>>/platform-community-<<CURRENT_VERSION>>/start_eXo.(sh|bat)

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

Known issues

Windows users

Scripts have to be launched from the directory where they are otherwise you have to explicitly set the environment variable CATALINA_HOME to the server home directory path.

Windows 64b users

You can force to activate the colorized console with the option

plf-community-tomcat-standalone/target/platform-community-<<CURRENT_VERSION>>/platform-community-<<CURRENT_VERSION>>/start_eXo.bat --color

Depending of your system you may need to install the package Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x64)

You can’t perform that action at this time.
