Building TeaVM

Simply clone source code (git clone and run maven build (mvn clean install). You can do things a little faster (mvn clean -DskipTests) or even a little more faster (mvn clean -DskipTests

Preview builds

You may want to access new features and don't want to wait until stable release is published on Maven Central. In this case you can get latest development build from bintray. All you need is to put the following in your pom.xml:


IDEA plugin is also available in preview builds. You need to add corresponding repository manually to IDEA. Open Settings -> Plugins -> Browse repositories... -> Manage repositories..., click Add button and enter Then get back to Browse repositories and pick TeaVM plugin from list.

Embedding TeaVM

If you are not satisfied with Maven, you can embed TeaVM in your program or even create your own plugin for any build tool, like Ant or Gradle. The starting point for you may be org.teavm.tooling.TeaVMTool class from teavm-tooling artifact. You may want to go deeper and use org.teavm.vm.TeaVM from teavm-core artifact, learn how TeaVMTool initializes it. To learn how to use TeaVMTool class itself, find its usages across project source code. You most likely encounter Maven and IDEA plugins.

Please, notice that these APIs for embedding are still unstable and may change between versions.


WebAssembly support is in experimental status. It may lack major features available in JavaScript backend. There's no documentation yet and you should do many things by hands (like embedding generated wasm file into your page, importing JavaScript objects, etc). Look at samples/benchmark module. You should first examine pom.xml file to learn how to build wasm file from Java. Then you may want to examine index-teavm.html and index-teavm.js to learn how to embed WebAssembly into your web page.
