How to build PMD
PMD uses the maven wrapper, so you can simply build PMD as following:
./mvnw clean verify(on Unix-like platform such as Linux and Mac OS X)
mvnw.cmd clean verify(on Windows)
This will create the zip files in the directory
cd pmd-dist/target ls *.zip
That's all !
Note: While Java 9 is required for building, running PMD only requires Java 7 (or Java 8 for Apex).
How to build the documentation?
cd docs bundle install # once bundle exec jekyll build
