To build from sources, first either check out the sources from CVS or download the latest distribution.
The build is based on Ant which can be found here.
To build a distribution, step down in the root catalog for this distribution and invoke
[jboner@gromit src]$cd ./backport175 [jboner@gromit backport175]$ant
This will trigger a full build.
To run the tests you just invoke:
[jboner@gromit backport175]$ant test
