This is a very basic module which can be used as a starting point in creating a new module.
Building from Source
You will need to have Java 1.6+ and Maven 2.x+ installed. Use the command 'mvn package' to compile and package the module. The .omod file will be in the omod/target folder.
Alternatively you can add the snippet provided in the Creating Modules page to your omod/pom.xml and use the mvn command:
mvn package -P deploy-web -D deploy.path="../../openmrs-1.8.x/webapp/src/main/webapp"
It will allow you to deploy any changes to your web resources such as jsp or js files without re-installing the module. The deploy path says where OpenMRS is deployed.
- Build the module to produce the .omod file.
- Use the OpenMRS Administration > Manage Modules screen to upload and install the .omod file.
If uploads are not allowed from the web (changable via a runtime property), you can drop the omod into the ~/.OpenMRS/modules folder. (Where ~/.OpenMRS is assumed to be the Application Data Directory that the running openmrs is currently using.) After putting the file in there simply restart OpenMRS/tomcat and the module will be loaded and started.
