Neo4j is the world’s leading Graph Database. It is a high performance graph store with all the features expected of a mature and robust database, like a friendly query language and ACID transactions. The programmer works with a flexible network structure of nodes and relationships rather than static tables — yet enjoys all the benefits of enterprise-quality database. For many applications, Neo4j offers orders of magnitude performance benefits compared to relational DBs.

The Neo4j Browser module is built using Node.js. For skipping that part of the build, see below.
mvn clean installwill only build the individual jar files.
Test execution is, of course, part of the build.
To add execution of integration tests, use:
mvn clean install -DrunITs
In case you just want the jars, without compiling the tests, this is for you:
mvn clean install -DminimalBuild
To skip building the browser module, use
-DskipBrowser(note that you might not be able to build the server without it.)
To build everything, including running all tests, producing documentation and assembling product packages, use
mvn clean install -DfullBuild
To build the documentation see the Neo4j manual
When building on Windows, use
-Dlicensing.skipto avoid problems related to line endings.
The license header check can be skipped by appending the following to the command line:
