Railo CFML Engine

Welcome to the Railo CFML Engine repostory

Building from source

1. Before you get started

Before you start building Railo from source, you are going to need a few things installed on your machine:

  1. Eclipse for JEE - this is the easiest Eclipse bundle to work with when building Java projects http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/eclipse-ide-java-ee-developers/heliosr
  2. Java 5 JDK - not just the JRE (because you're going to be compiling Java code) - and not Java 6! Railo requires Java 5 to build correctly! (CHECK)
  3. A Git client, any client will do. The demo here will be using the command line client to keep it simple http://git-scm.com/. There is also the EGit plugin for Eclipse for you to commit your changes locally and create patch files for submission http://www.eclipse.org/egit/
  4. A running Railo installation in which to test your new patch file http://www.getrailo.org/index.cfm/download/

2. Get the source code from git://github.com/getrailo/railo.git

The main way to get the code for Railo is to clone it with git. So at a command line (or using your favourite client) clone the source of the project into a folder on your computer:

git clone git://github.com/getrailo/railo.git

after a little while you should see something like:

Cloning into railo...
remote: Counting objects: 11038, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (4138/4138), done.
remote: Total 11038 (delta 7162), reused 10404 (delta 6612)
Receiving objects: 100% (11038/11038), 59.48 MiB | 639 KiB/s, done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (7162/7162), done.

That's it! you have downloaded all the source code for Railo!

3. Change into the railo-build directory and run ant

cd railo/railo-build
ant

Currently the default build creates the .rc file (for whichever version you have set in the railo-build/build.properties file) (this is not reflected everywhere yet! It is only used to name the file, you really want to change it in railo-core/src/railo/runtime/Info.ini too)

Once the build has finished you will find the files in the railo-build/build directory

Notes

This is currently a work in progress so it probably might not work at all.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
