  • Java 6+
  • Grails 1.3.4
  • PostgreSQL 8+ (required for testing, other runtime databases are supported)

To run jBilling from source you will need to have Java 6+ and Grails 1.3.4 installed. To install grails, download version 1.3.4 from the Grails Archive and follow the installation instructions for your operating system.

Java and PostgreSQL can be downloaded an installed by visiting the vendor's websites, or in linux environments by using the package manager (apt-get or yum).

Cloning the Source Code from GitHub

Install Git.

Clone the repository from

clone jbilling-community

Configuring PostgreSQL

To run jBilling with the out-of-box reference database, you must have PostgreSQL installed and configured with a 'jbilling' user and an empty 'jbilling_test' database. The setup scripts also expect that the user will allow local connections without a password.

Edit the PostgreSQL pg_hba.conf file and change the "local" and "IPv4" localhost connection types:

# "local" is for Unix domain socket connections only
local   all         all                               trust
# IPv4 local connections:
host    all         all          trust

Connect to PostgreSQL and create the test user and database.

CREATE DATABASE jbilling_test WITH OWNER jbilling;


Run the grails compile target to compile the jBilling source code, then run the prepare-test target to load the reference database and prepare all the required resources.

grails compile
grails prepare-test

The grails compile target may halt with a compiler error on some environments, running compile a second time usually resolves the issue.
