Welcome to Drools ----------------- Drools uses maven to build the system. There are two profiles available which enable the associated modules "documentation" and "eclipse"; this enables quicker building of the core modules for developers. The eclipse profile will download eclipse into the drools-eclipse folder, which is over 100MB download, however this only needs to be done once; if you wish you can move that eclipse download into another location and specify it with -DlocalEclipseDrop=/folder/jboss-rules/local-eclipse-drop-mirror. NOTE: you MUST use maven version 2.0.8 or later to build because of surefire maven plugin classpath problems. The following builds all the jars, the documentation and the eclipse zip with a local folder specified to avoid downloading eclipse: mvn -Declipse -Ddocumentation clean install -DlocalEclipseDrop=/folder/jboss-rules/local-eclipse-drop-mirror You can produce distribution builds, which puts everything into zips, as follows: mvn -Declipse -Ddocumentation clean install -DlocalEclipseDrop=/folder/jboss-rules/local-eclipse-drop-mirror mvn -Ddocumentation -Declipse -Dmaven.test.skip package javadoc:javadoc assembly:assembly -DlocalEclipseDrop=/folder/jboss-rules/local-eclipse-drop-mirror Note that install must be done first as javadoc:javadoc won't work unless the jars are in the local maven repo, but the tests can be skipped on the second run. assembly:assembly fails unless you increase the available memory to Maven, on windows the following command worked well: set MAVEN_OPTS=-Xmx512m If you have a ydoc license then you can build the javadocs with uml images using the ydoc doclet. Simple add the following to the mvn command line: -Dydoc.home=<path to ydoc> KNOWN PROBLEMS: * Functions can't be called from MVEL code blocks. Although, static methods from previously existing classes are working fine. * There are still some issues with MVEL code completion. * MVEL debug is not working.
