when you build:
mvn -P dist install
mvn -P dist package
you should get a tar file like:
The run-demo.sh is there:
-rw-rw-r-- jfclere/jfclere 608 2013-09-04 13:24 demo/client/run-demo.bat
-rw-rw-r-- jfclere/jfclere 589 2013-09-04 13:24 demo/client/run-demo.sh
Try to use 1.2.5.Final to test it.
Silly me...I was looking into the wrong directory.
