Build Instructions - r840

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, though 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 -- 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.
