The project is built using Apache Ant and uses Apache Ivy for dependency resolution.
Building from command line
# fetch dependencies
# create the JARS containing binaries, sources and documentation
# fetch dependencies ant resolve # create the JARS containing binaries, sources and documentation ant jarAll
For a list of all available targets please use
Eclipse and IntelliJ IDEA project files are available in the project's root folder.
Ensure you perform dependency resolution (by running
ant resolve) so that your classpath
is configured correctly.
