Cannonical Source Repository

The sources of Apache OpenWebBeans are maintained in the Apache Software Foundation Subversion repository. This is the repository where all committers work on.

The sources can be checked out read only with the following command:

svn co openwebbeans

If you have commit rights, then you should use

svn co openwebbeans

Building OpenWebBeans

Apache OpenWebBeans can be built by using Apache Maven. Just go into the source directory and execute

mvn clean install

The following maven profiles exist in our build to trigger additional build steps and configuration:

In trunk they are all activated by default and run every time you build OpenWebBeans.

For older OpenWebBeans versions you might enable them manually.

mvn clean install -Ptck -Pjsr330-tck -Pdoc
