git clone --depth 10
git clone

cd openpetra

# setup the basic configuration

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <project name="OpenPetra-userconfig">
        <property name="DBMS.Type" value="sqlite"/>
        <property name="Server.DebugLevel" value="0"/>

# this will take a couple of minutes while code is generated and the solution gets compiled
nant generateSolution

# create a fresh sqlite database
nant recreateDatabase resetDatabase

# run the server with xsp4
nant start
# stop the server
nant stop

You can test your OpenPetra installation at http://localhost:9000 and http://localhost:9000/api
