  • Java 11+

In spite of the requirements of using JDK 11+ to build this project, client artifacts (and its dependencies) must be compatible with a Java 8 runtime. All other components are built and ran using JDK11+.

The clientJavaVersion project property determines the version used to build the client (defaults to 8).

Building Pravega

Checkout the source code:

git clone
cd pravega

Build the pravega distribution:

./gradlew distribution

Install pravega jar files into the local maven repository. This is handy for running the pravega-samples locally against a custom version of pravega.

./gradlew install

Running unit tests:

./gradlew test

Setting up your IDE

Pravega uses Project Lombok so you should ensure you have your IDE setup with the required plugins. Using IntelliJ is recommended.

To import the source into IntelliJ:

  1. Import the project directory into IntelliJ IDE. It will automatically detect the gradle project and import things correctly.
  2. Enable Annotation Processing by going to Build, Execution, Deployment -> Compiler > Annotation Processors and checking 'Enable annotation processing'.
  3. Install the Lombok Plugin. This can be found in Preferences -> Plugins. Restart your IDE.
  4. Pravega should now compile properly.

For eclipse, you can generate eclipse project files by running ./gradlew eclipse.

Note: Some unit tests will create (and delete) a significant amount of files. For improved performance on Windows machines, be sure to add the appropriate 'Microsoft Defender' exclusion.


The latest pravega releases can be found on the Github Release project page.

Snapshot artifacts

All snapshot artifacts from master and release branches are available in GitHub Packages Registry
