Welcome to GateIn
==================

This document explains how to build and package GateIn with Tomcat, JBoss, or Jetty.


Prerequisites
=============

- Java Development Kit 1.6
- Recent Git client
- Recent Maven 3 (might work with Maven 2.2.1 as well)


Build configuration
===================

GateIn build uses a system property called 'gatein.dev' to configure the target server to use for packaging.

When gatein.dev property is not set it will build *everything* in the project: development modules, the documentation,
the server packages, the examples, ... and package all the servers.

When the gatein.dev property is set it will build and package one or several servers thereby reducing to the minimum the build time.

The various values for gatein.dev are:

- eap630     : JBoss EAP 6.3.0.Alpha1
- tomcat7    : Tomcat 7
- jetty      : Jetty (unsupported at the moment)

Build instructions
==================

1) Clone GateIn Portal
--------------------------

git clone git://github.com/gatein/gatein-portal.git
cd gatein-portal


You may want to fork it into your own github.com space, and clone your forked version, but that is beyond the scope of this README.


2) Prepare containers to use for packaging
------------------------------------------

Create a directory on your disk that will contain specific versions of JBoss AS, Tomcat, Jetty, or some other container, used as a packaging server.

Let’s refer to this directory as SERVERS_DIR.


3) Build and package gatein-portal
----------------------------------

You can build gatein-portal without packaging it by using the following command:

mvn clean install -Dgatein.dev -DskipTests


But that's only usable for development since in order to be able to run GateIn you have to package it.

GateIn can be packaged with different web / application servers. The specific server to use is selected by using an appropriate profile.

Profile is selected by using -Dgatein.dev= with one of the supported values as described later.

There is one parameter (-Dservers.dir=$SERVERS_DIR) that has to be specified every time in order to specify the location on the disk where you want to keep you application servers used for packaging.

For each server packaging there is a default server version that will be used.

You can override the name of the directory that contains your server (under $SERVERS_DIR) by using -Dserver.name=$NAME parameter.

There are server specific equivalents that have to be used when packaging several servers in one build run. Those are described later.



  Packaging with JBoss EAP 6.3.0.Alpha1
  -------------------------------------

First, you'll need to download JBoss EAP 6.3.0.Alpha1 from JBoss.org's download page: http://www.jboss.org/jbossas/downloads/ . 
Then, unpack it on SERVERS_DIR, so that you get SERVERS_DIR/jboss-eap-6.3 directory. 

In this case you can issue the following command:

mvn install -DskipTests -Dservers.dir=$SERVERS_DIR -Dgatein.dev=eap630

For more finegrained control you can specify the directory under SERVERS_DIR that contains the jboss-eap-6.3 that you wish to use for packaging.
You do that by using -Dserver.name=$NAME.

IMPORTANT: The eap630 profile uses the same artifact versions as released by JBoss EAP 6.3.0.Alpha1. This means that it's guaranteed to work only with that version. Using another EAP version might or might not work. 

The packaged GateIn is available in packaging/jboss/pkg/target/jboss-eap

To start it, go to jboss-eap directory, and run 'bin/standalone.sh' ('bin\standalone.bat' on Windows).

Access the portal at: http://localhost:8080/portal

For more info about JBoss AS support see packaging/jboss/README.txt



  Packaging with Tomcat 7.x.x
  ---------------------------

If you don’t have an existing Tomcat 7.x.x distribution, the build can automatically download it for you.

Issue the following command:

mvn install -DskipTests -Dservers.dir=$SERVERS_DIR -Dgatein.dev=tomcat7 -Pdownload


If you have an existing Tomcat 7.x.x distribution, unpack it into SERVERS_DIR directory so that you get SERVERS_DIR/apache-tomcat-7.x.x directory.

In this case you can issue the following command:

mvn install -DskipTests -Dservers.dir=$SERVERS_DIR -Dgatein.dev=tomcat7 -Dserver.name=apache-tomcat-7.x.x

(fix tomcat version in 'server.name')


The packaged GateIn is available in packaging/tomcat/tomcat7/target/tomcat.

To start, go to tomcat7 directory, and run 'bin/gatein.sh run' ('bin\gatein.bat run' on Windows).
Alternatively you can use 'bin/gatein.sh start' ('bin\gatein.bat start' on Windows).

Access the portal at: http://localhost:8080/portal



  Packaging with Jetty 6.x.x (unsupported at the moment)
  ---------------------------

If you don’t have an existing Jetty 6.x.x distribution, the build can automatically download it for you.

Issue the following command:

mvn install -DskipTests -Dservers.dir=$SERVERS_DIR -Dgatein.dev=jetty -Pdownload


If you have an existing Jetty 6.x.x distribution, unpack it into SERVERS_DIR directory so that you get SERVERS_DIR/jetty-6.x.x directory.

In this case you can issue the following command:

mvn install -DskipTests -Dservers.dir=$SERVERS_DIR -Dgatein.dev=jetty -Dserver.name=jetty-6.x.x

(fix jetty version in 'server.name')


The packaged GateIn is available in packaging/jetty/pkg/target/jetty.

To start, go to jetty directory, and run 'bin/gatein.sh start' ('bin\gatein.bat start' on Windows).
Alternatively you can use 'bin/gatein.sh run' ('bin\gatein.bat run' on Windows).

Access the portal at: http://localhost:8080/portal



Packaging with all containers in one go
=======================================

The simplest way to package with all the supported containers is to let the build download all the default app server versions:

mvn install -DskipTests -Dservers.dir=$SERVERS_DIR -Ddownload


You can also specify server names for each container - for example:

mvn install -DskipTests -Dservers.dir=$SERVERS_DIR -Djboss.name=jboss-eap-6.3 -Dtomcat7.name=tomcat-7.0.19 -Djetty.name=jetty-6.0.24


Release instructions
====================


You should execute this magic command line:

mvn release:prepare
mvn release:perform



Troubleshooting
===============


Maven dependencies issues
-------------------------

While GateIn should build without any extra maven repository configuration it may happen that the build complains about missing artifacts.

If you encounter this situation, please let us know via our forums (http://community.jboss.org/en/gatein?view=discussions).

As a quick workaround you may try setting up maven repositories as follows.

Create file settings.xml in $HOME/.m2  (%HOMEPATH%\.m2 on Windows) with the following content:

<settings>
  <profiles>
    <profile>
      <id>jboss-public-repository</id>
      <repositories>
        <repository>
          <id>jboss-public-repository-group</id>
          <name>JBoss Public Maven Repository Group</name>
          <url>https://repository.jboss.org/nexus/content/groups/public-jboss/</url>
          <layout>default</layout>
          <releases>
            <enabled>true</enabled>
            <updatePolicy>never</updatePolicy>
          </releases>
          <snapshots>
            <enabled>true</enabled>
            <updatePolicy>never</updatePolicy>
          </snapshots>
        </repository>
      </repositories>
      <pluginRepositories>
        <pluginRepository>
          <id>jboss-public-repository-group</id>
          <name>JBoss Public Maven Repository Group</name>
          <url>https://repository.jboss.org/nexus/content/groups/public-jboss/</url>
          <layout>default</layout>
          <releases>
            <enabled>true</enabled>
            <updatePolicy>never</updatePolicy>
          </releases>
          <snapshots>
            <enabled>true</enabled>
            <updatePolicy>never</updatePolicy>
          </snapshots>
        </pluginRepository>
      </pluginRepositories>
    </profile>

    <profile>
      <id>exo-public-repository</id>
      <repositories>
        <repository>
          <id>exo-public-repository-group</id>
          <name>eXo Public Maven Repository Group</name>
          <url>http://repository.exoplatform.org/content/groups/public</url>
          <layout>default</layout>
          <releases>
            <enabled>true</enabled>
            <updatePolicy>never</updatePolicy>
          </releases>
          <snapshots>
            <enabled>true</enabled>
            <updatePolicy>never</updatePolicy>
          </snapshots>
        </repository>
      </repositories>
      <pluginRepositories>
        <pluginRepository>
          <id>exo-public-repository-group</id>
          <name>eXo Public Maven Repository Group</name>
          <url>http://repository.exoplatform.org/content/groups/public</url>
          <layout>default</layout>
          <releases>
            <enabled>true</enabled>
            <updatePolicy>never</updatePolicy>
          </releases>
          <snapshots>
            <enabled>true</enabled>
            <updatePolicy>never</updatePolicy>
          </snapshots>
        </pluginRepository>
      </pluginRepositories>
    </profile>
  </profiles>

  <activeProfiles>
    <activeProfile>jboss-public-repository</activeProfile>
    <activeProfile>exo-public-repository</activeProfile>
  </activeProfiles>
</settings>


Normally you should not need to configure this to build GateIn.



OutOfMemoryException
--------------------

Try increasing maximum heap size used by Maven:

export MAVEN_OPTS=-Xmx256m

(on Windows try: set MAVEN_OPTS=-Xmx256m)
