HornetQ

If you need information about the HornetQ project please go to

http://community.jboss.org/wiki/HornetQ

http://www.jboss.org/hornetq/

This file describes some minimum 'stuff one needs to know' to get started coding in this project.

Source

The project's source code is hosted at:

https://github.com/hornetq

Git usage:

Pull requests should be merged without fast forwards '--no-ff'. An easy way to achieve that is to use

% git config branch.master.mergeoptions --no-ff

Maven

The minimum required Maven version is 3.0.0.

Do note that there are some compatibility issues with Maven 3.X still unsolved 1. This is specially true for the 'site' plugin 2.

Tests

To run the unit tests:

% mvn -Phudson-tests test

Generating reports from unit tests:

% mvn install site

Running tests individually

% mvn -Phudson-tests -DfailIfNoTests=false -Dtest=<test-name> test

where <test-name> is the name of the Test class without its package name

Examples

To run an example firstly make sure you have run

% mvn -Prelease install

If the project version has already been released then this is unnecessary.

then you will need to set the following maven options, on Linux by

export MAVEN_OPTS="-Xmx1024m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m"

and the finally run the examples by

% mvn verify

You can also run individual examples by running the same command from the directory of which ever example you want to run. NB for this make sure you have installed examples/common.

To build a release artifact

% mvn -Prelease install

To build the release bundle

% mvn -Prelease package

Eclipse

We recommend using Eclipse Indigo (3.7) or Eclipse Juno (4.2), due to the improved Maven and Git support. Note that there are still some Maven plugins used by sub-projects (e.g. documentation) which are not supported even in Eclipse Juno (4.2).

Eclipse code formatting and (basic) project configuration files can be found at the etc/ folder. You need to manually copy them or use a plugin.

Annotation Pre-Processing

HornetQ uses JBoss Logging and that requires source code generation from Java annotations. In order for it to 'just work' in Eclipse you need to install the Maven Integration for Eclipse JDT Annotation Processor Toolkit m2e-apt. See this JBoss blog post for details.

M2E Connector for Javacc-Maven-Plugin

Eclipse Indigo (3.7) has out-of-the-box support for it.

As of this writing, Eclipse Juno (4.2) still lacks support for Maven's javacc plugin. See this post on the m2e connector for javacc-maven-plugin for manual installation instructions (as of this writing you need to use the development update site).

Use Project Working Sets

Importing all HornetQ subprojects will create too many projects in Eclipse, cluttering your Package Explorer and Project Explorer views. One way to address that is to use Eclipse's Working Sets feature. A good introduction to it can be found at a Dzone article on Eclipse Working Sets.

Github procedures

HornetQ accepts contributions through pull requests on GitHub. After review a pull request should either get merged or be rejected.

When a pull request needs to be reworked, say you have missed something, the pull request is then closed, at the time you finished the required changes you should reopen your original Pull Request and it will then be re-evaluated. At that point if the request is aproved we will then merge it.

Make sure you always rebase your branch on master before submitting pull requests.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
