Overview

This documents how to build Groovy from source.

Prerequisites

Java Developer Kit (JDK)

You will need a JDK 1.4.2+ (J2SE 1.4.2+) or compatible JDK to build Groovy.

Apache Ant

To execute the build process you need to have Apache Ant version 1.7.0 (or newer) installed.

Subversion Client

To fetch the source code for the server, you will need to have a Subversion client version 1.2 (or newer, 1.4 is recommended) installed.

Icon

If you are using a source archive from the distribution site site, then you do not need to have a Subversion client installed.

Fetch the Groovy Source Code

From Subversion

There are many different protocols available to access the Groovy source code. For the complete list see the source repository details for the project.

svn co https://svn.codehaus.org/groovy/trunk/groovy/groovy-core

From a Source Archive

Select one of the *-src.* archives from the distribution site site and unzip it.

For example, to use the source from the Groovy 1.1-beta-2 release:

wget http://dist.groovy.codehaus.org/distributions/groovy-src-1.1-beta-2.zip
unzip groovy-src-1.1-beta-2.zip

Preparing to Build for the First Time

If you are behind a proxy firewall, you may need to set up proxy information in a ~/.ant/settings.xml or ~/.m2/settings.xml file:

If you will need to publish artifacts then you will need to have appropriate permissions with codehaus and ensure that you have stored your credentials in a ~/.ant/settings.xml or ~/.m2/settings.xml file of the form:

Building

To build everything, run tests and create a complete installation in target/install/, run:

ant install

After this finished successfully, then you can try out the distribution that was just built. For example to play with groovysh you can run:

./target/install/bin/groovysh

Sometimes its desirable to skip the test execution for faster turn around. To turn off tests set the skipTests property, as in:

ant install -DskipTests=true

Publishing

To publish artifacts to the Maven 2 repository, run:

ant deploy

This will either publish to the release repository or the snapshot repository based on whether the POM version contains SNAPSHOT or not.

If deploy is failing, then check Installing the UserTrust CA into the Java JDK.
