- 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.
Cloning the Source Code from GitHub
Clone the repository from
clone email@example.com:emilc/jBilling.git jbilling-community
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 127.0.0.1/32 trust
Connect to PostgreSQL and create the test user and database.
CREATE ROLE jbilling WITH LOGIN SUPERUSER CREATEDB CREATEROLE PASSWORD 'jbilling'; 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.
