Checking out and Building

To check out the project and build from source, do the following:

git clone git://
cd spring-integration
./gradlew build

NOTE: While Spring Integration runs with Java SE 6 or higher, a Java 8 compiler is required to build the project.

If you encounter out of memory errors during the build, increase available heap and permgen for Gradle:

GRADLE_OPTS='-XX:MaxPermSize=1024m -Xmx1024m'

To build and install jars into your local Maven cache:

./gradlew install

To build api Javadoc (results will be in build/api):

./gradlew api

To build reference documentation (results will be in build/reference):

./gradlew reference

To build complete distribution including -dist, -docs, and -schema zip files (results will be in build/distributions)

./gradlew dist

Using Eclipse

To generate Eclipse metadata (.classpath and .project files), do the following:

./gradlew eclipse

Once complete, you may then import the projects into Eclipse as usual:

File -> Import -> Existing projects into workspace

Browse to the 'spring-integration' root directory. All projects should import free of errors.

Using IntelliJ IDEA

To generate IDEA metadata (.iml and .ipr files), do the following:

./gradlew idea
