Building with Maven
Apollo uses Maven as its primary build tool for performing releases and uses the pom.xml to describe dependencies between modules.
To build Apollo maven has to be configured to use more memory
set MAVEN_OPTS=-Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=128m
A normal build
Once the build completes, you will find the binary distribution of
Apollo located in the
Doing a Quick Build
The following avoids running all the unit test cases, we just skip the test running phase and not the building part
mvn -Dtest=false install
Using an IDE
If you prefer to use an IDE then you can auto-generate the IDE's project files using maven plugins. e.g.
Importing into Eclipse
If you have not already done so, you will need to make Eclipse aware of
the Maven repository so that it can build everything. In the preferences,
Java -> Build Path -> Classpath and define a new Classpath
M2_REPO that points to your local Maven repository. i.e.
~/.m2/repository on Unix and
c:\Documents and Settings\$username\.m2\repository
You can also get Maven to do this for you:
mvn eclipse:add-maven-repo -Declipse.workspace=/path/to/the/workspace/
