Building from sources
Building OWNER from the sources has some advantages. For instance you can get the latest features still under development on GitHub master branch.
Building OWNER requires following software being installed and configured in your system:
- JDK 1.5 or superior.
- Maven 3.0.5 or superior (Maven 2 should also be ok).
- GIT any recent version should be ok.
Then follow these steps:
# Download the sources $ git clone https://github.com/lviggiano/owner.git owner $ cd owner # Compile, execute test, and generate the artifacts $ mvn install
This will build and install OWNER jars in your local maven repository.
At the end of the process, you should find the generated artifacts in the
The above examples uses the https url to clone the GIT repository, alternatively - if your firewall allows - you can use the GIT native URL that may be faster: git://github.com/lviggiano/owner.git.
Building with support for Java 8
Since version 1.0.6 OWNER supports some language features introduced by Java 8, such as
The support classes for these features are encapsulated in the maven module called
owner-java8 that gets
included into the build process only when maven is invoked from JDK 8.
Building a specific version
git clone command downloads the full repository with the complete history
on your local computer. That also contains tags for the released versions.
For instance, if I want to build the version 1.0.2
# as example, this time we use the git:// URL $ git clone git://github.com/lviggiano/owner.git owner $ cd owner # show all available tags $ git tag -l owner-1.0 owner-1.0.1 owner-1.0.2 owner-1.0.3 ... $ git checkout owner-1.0.2 HEAD is now at d2e4bbf... [maven-release-plugin] prepare release owner-1.0.2 $ mvn install
Please refer to GIT documentation to learn how to work with tags.
Running the tests
OWNER codebase is very compact and fully tested.
To execute the tests, you need maven properly installed and configured in your system, then run the following command from the project root:
$ mvn test
