Building Tiles

Prerequisites

For all the next instructions, we assume that you downloaded and installed Maven.

To download packages from the source repository, you need to download and install Subversion.

If you want to build something including JavaDocs (assemblies, sites and JavaDoc report itself) you need to install GraphViz, otherwise you will notice missing pictures inside JavaDocs pages.

Building main packages

To build Tiles from source you need to:

  • download the source distribution, or checkout the latest version:

    svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/tiles/framework/trunk/tiles-parent
  • go into the source directory and type:

    mvn package

You will find the generated JARs under:

  • {tiles-dir}/tiles-{module}/target/tiles-{module}-${version}.jar

Building Tiles Test webapp

See Selenium testing with Tiles Test webapp.
