<p class="p1"><b>GeoTools @VERSION@</b></p>
<p class="p2">Thank you for downloading GeoTools @VERSION@. This release was created on: @DATE@.</p>
<p class="p2">This release contains only a subset of the current GeoTools codebase. The full GeoTools codebase is made up of over 30 modules; Only the modules which are considered to be stable will be included in this release.</p>
<p class="p2">For more information, and documentation on the GeoTools library please see our <a href=""><span class="s1">Community Wiki</span></a> or the <a href=""><span class="s1">User Guide</span></a>.</p>
<p class="p3"><b>NOTE</b></p>
<p class="p2">The details contained in the rest of this file are provided as a quick start reference. For full details on requirements and build process please see the <a href=""><span class="s1">Developers' Guide</span></a>.</p>
<p class="p3"><b>REQUIREMENTS</b></p>
<p class="p2">To use the GeoTools libraries you will need:</p>
<ul class="ul1">
  <li class="li4">Java 5 or higher.</li>
  <li class="li5"><br></li>
<p class="p2">GeoTools will benefit from the inclusion of Java Advanced Imaging (JAI) and the Java Image IO (JIO) extensions in your JRE. In addition some formats require the ImageIO-Ext additions which explicitly support raster formats such as MRSID and ECW.</p>
<p class="p2">You can obtain the latest versions of both of these <a href=""><span class="s1">here</span></a>. Detailed instructions can be found <a href=""><span class="s1">here</span></a>.</p>
<p class="p3"><b>ORACLE REQUIREMENTS</b></p>
<p class="p2">In order to use the Oracle module, you need the Oracle JDBC driver from Oracle. Unlike most external libraries used in GeoTools, we cannot redistribute this jar.</p>
<p class="p2">However, you can obtain them from the Oracle website, free of charge, after registering: - Please see the developers guide for more information.</p>
<p class="p3"><b>BUILDING</b></p>
<p class="p2">In order to build GeoTools you will need a copy of <a href=""><span class="s1">Maven 2</span></a>. Maven is a project management tool from the Apache group.</p>
<p class="p2">At the time of writing, the build process was known to work with the Maven 2.1.0 release.</p>
<p class="p2">Once you have maven installed, you can perform a full build by moving to the GeoTools folder and typing:</p>
<p class="p6">mvn install</p>
<p class="p7"><br></p>
<p class="p2">Please read the <a href=""><span class="s1">Developers Guide</span></a> for more information about maven:</p>
<p class="p3"><b>GETTING INVOLVED</b></p>
<p class="p2">For general queries the <a href=""><span class="s1">gt2-users mailing list</span></a> is available.</p>
<p class="p2">If you are interested in the future development of GeoTools then feel free to join the geotools-devel mailing list.We welcome contributions of new modules as well as keen developers who want to work on the project as a whole.</p>
<p class="p2">You can find out more about the mailing lists and recent news by going to the <a href=""><span class="s1">GeoTools Homepage</span></a> and by reading the <a href=""><span class="s1">GeoTools Guide</span></a>.</p>
<p class="p2">Good luck and many thanks for your interest in GeoTools,</p>
