Neo4j Graph Database

For more information, visit: http://neo4j.org/

Building

Neo4j is built using Maven - http://maven.apache.org/

Maven 3 is now supported

Requirements

At least as of Neo4j 1.7 and OpenJDK 1.7.0_147-icedtea, OpenJDK 7 is unable to build Neo4j with following error: java.lang.AssertionError: Missing type variable in where clause T. Please use JDK 6 (OpenJDK is fine) to build Neo4j.

In addition, you need to allow enough memory to the Maven build process, for example by adding before launching Maven:

export JAVA_OPTS='-Xms384M -Xmx512M -XX:MaxPermSize=256M'

At least on OpenJDK 1.6.0_23, building Neo4j with the default settings throws misleading exceptions such as: (reproduced here for your information)

[ERROR] Specifications.java:[178,33] cannot find symbol
symbol  : method and(java.lang.Iterable<java.lang.Object>)
location: class org.neo4j.helpers.Specifications
[ERROR] Iterables.java:[342,63] <FROM,TO>map(
    org.neo4j.helpers.Function<? super FROM,? extends TO>,
    java.lang.Iterable<FROM>) in org.neo4j.helpers.collection.Iterables
    cannot be applied to (<anonymous org.neo4j.helpers.Function<java.lang.Iterable<T>,
    java.util.Iterator<T>>>,java.lang.Iterable<java.lang.Object>)

Working with the source code in Eclipse IDE

Have a look at the readme file in cypher/ for how to get that project to work in Eclipse IDE. If it isn't setup properly, other projects (submodules) that depend on it will not get built by Eclipse.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
