The build of SCM-Manager requires the following installed packages:

  • Git
  • JDK 11
  • Mercurial (required for tests)
  • Docker (required for the docker package)

The build of SCM-Manager requires Java 11.


SCM-Manager uses Gradle for the build. The build itself is organized in tasks, the tasks can be executed with the gradle wrapper:

# on *nix
./gradlew taskname

# on windows
gradlew.bat taskname

This following tables describes some high level tasks, which should cover most of the daily work.

Name Description
run Starts an SCM-Manager with enabled livereload for the ui
build Executes all checks, tests and builds the smp inclusive javadoc and source jar
distribution Builds all distribution packages of scm-packaging
check Executes all registered checks and tests
test Run all unit tests
integrationTest Run all integration tests of scm-it
clean Deletes the build directory

The next table defines a few more tasks which are more relevant for CI servers.

Name Description
publish Publishes all artifacts and packages (required properties, see section 'Properties for publishing')
sonarqube Executes a SonarQube analysis
setVersion Sets the version to a new version
setVersionToNextSnapshot Sets the version to the next snapshot version

There many more tasks, which are executed as part of the high level tasks, and it should rarely be necessary to call them individually. To see the full list of available tasks, execute the following command:

# on *nix
./gradlew tasks

# on windows
gradlew.bat tasks


Dependencies and their versions are configured in the gradle/dependencies.gradle. Versions of dependencies can be specified as exact version or as a range of versions. In order to keep the build consistent and reproducible, we use gradle dependency locking. Whenever a dependency was added, changed or removed the lock files must be refreshed e.g.:

# on *nix
./gradlew resolveAndLockAll --write-locks

# on windows
gradlew.bat resolveAndLockAll --write-locks

Artifacts and reports

Artifacts and reports which are created from the tasks are stored in the build directory of each subproject.


If you want to debug the run task of SCM-Manager. You can provide the --debug-jvm option, which starts the SCM-Manager jvm in debug mode. Then you can attach a debugger on port 5005. The port can be changed by using the --debug-port e.g.: --debug-port=5006. If you want to wait until a debugger is attached, before SCM-Manager starts you can use the --debug-wait option.


SCM-Manager provides various modules to deploy SCM-Manager on differnt platforms (e.g. Docker, Helm, RPM, DEB, Windows). Those modules are not build by default. To build the distribution modules specify the enablePackaging property e.g.:

# on *nix
./gradlew -PenablePackaging distribution

# on windows
gradlew.bat -PenablePackaging distribution

The command above will refresh the lock files of all sub projects and all configurations.

Properties for publishing

The publishing process requires the following properties for authentication and signing. Those properties should be stored in ~/.gradle/

Property Description
