If you need information about the HornetQ project please go to
This file describes some minimum 'stuff one needs to know' to get started coding in this project.
The project's source code is hosted at:
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
The minimum required Maven version is 3.0.0.
To run the unit tests:
% mvn -Phudson-tests test
Generating reports from unit tests:

To build a release artifact
% mvn install -Prelease
We recommend you to use Eclipse 3.7 "Indigo". As it improved Maven and Git support considerably. Note that there are still some Maven plugins used by sub-projects (e.g. documentation) which are not supported even in Eclipse 3.7.
Eclipse code formatting and (basic) project configuration files can be
found at the
etc/ folder. You need to manually copy them or use
HornetQ uses JBoss Logging and that requires source code to be generated from Java annotations. Currently M2E doesn't 'just work' when Maven is configured to do that, although there is work in progress to achieve this 3.
While waiting for M2E to solve this once and for all, there are 2 alternatives to work around it:
One is to configure Eclipse to run annotation processors, but that requires a direct reference to the JBoss Logging processor (apparently Eclipse can't take this from the Maven path).
Compiling the classes through Maven in the command line, and then adding the source folder to the project's classpath.
