Build Instructions

You can build your own WAR file from the latest source. Alternatively you can use one of the NightlyBuilds.

You'll need:

  • Sun Java 1.5 or greater (requires 1.5 features, only tested with Sun compiler)
  • A recent apache ant
  • An SVN client to get a checkout

(The unit tests now require Java 1.6 to run fully - this was unintentional, probably fixable by adding another jar. There doesn't appear to be an XPath API implementation in 1.5 or something - on my todo list. We now skip that test if necessary with stderr warning. -- MattHillsdon)

On Ubuntu and similar that'd be:

sudo apt-get install sun-java5-jdk ant subversion

Then to build:

svn co http://svn.reviki.org/svn/reviki/trunk reviki
cd reviki
ant war

reviki.war is the newly created WAR file as referenced on SetupGuide.

Do ask for help if you have any trouble - see feedback on FrontPage.
