This page describes how to get started if you want to build Activiti Designer yourself or if you want to extend Activiti Designer's features. It assumes you have a working knowledge of Eclipse, Maven and RCP development.

As you can see, there are quite a number of projects in this tree. You will need to have all of them in your Eclipse workspace to build Designer yourself. It's important that you perform a checkout of all of these projects as top level projects in your workspace. Obviously, you can do without the examples folder, but you need the other projects.

This might take a while because Maven will now download a lot of dependencies to your local repository and setup the projects. Make sure the command ends with a Build Successful so you know everything's OK as far as Maven is concerned.
