Build tinylog

tinylog can be built with Maven:

mvn clean checkstyle:checkstyle findbugs:findbugs install

tinylog is compatible with Java 5 (and higher). Therefore it is recommend to build tinylog at least once against a Java 5 runtime before commiting something. The path to "rt.jar" as well as the source and target version can be set via properties.


A new folder "target" with Javadoc documentation and all JARs will be created in the root directory.
