Building From Source

The Annotated Object Validator is built using the Maven platform. You must have this installed in order to build the software. Please follow the instructions here if you do not have Maven already installed.

To build the software, first obtain the source code from subversion by following the instructions on this page , open a terminal (or Windows command prompt), switch to the folder containing the source code, and type the following command:

$ mvn package

This will create a jar file in the target folder that can be imported and used in your project.

To install the package in your local Maven repository, so that it can be used using Maven's dependency management, enter the following command:

$ mvn install

To generate this site, and the accompanying documentation, enter this command:

$ mvn site

This will generate a site in the folder target/site .
