Subject Re: Building from the trunk
Date Thu, 21 Aug 2008 00:51:10 GMT
Hi Brad,

First note: the current trunk is still very much under development and other (big) refactoring
steps are coming up in 
the area of the security and preferences too (branch JS2-869) which are targetted to be merge/moved
to trunk when it is 

But the current trunk *is* buildable and usable.
Current instructions on how to build and make use of the new maven-2 build environment are
temporarily available from my 
apache home directory here:


I send a message to this list a few weeks ago about the new build system and its current state
which you might want to 
read also:

With regards to the j2-admin application project: yes, you should build that from trunk and
install it in your local 
Then, when you build the jetspeed-demo portal (see: 
http://people.apache.org/~ate/jetspeed-2.2-maven-plugins/building-jetspeed.html) it will be
automatically deployed with 
the portal.
