    Partial Build of jboss-head from repository

    ryan.campbell Expert

      You can now partially build jboss-head from the repository with the new build system. Here are the steps at this point:

      You probably want this in it's own directory:

      mkdir jboss-dir
      cd jboss-dir

      Then, just check out the toplevel build and the tools module:
      cvs co jbossas
      cvs co tools

      You will need to set your cvs info in jbossas/local.properties:
      cvs.prefix=:ext:rcampbell

      Note, you will need ssh-agent setup to run cvs without entering a password for now.
      Now you are ready to synchronize and build:
      ant sychronize
      ant build
      output/jboss-5.0.0alpha/bin/run.sh -c all
      

      The synchronize target will checkout the source components from cvs and download thirdparty components from the repository.

      There are a few caveats. I have only completed the modules marked as complete under http://jira.jboss.com/jira/browse/JBBUILD-1, so this means things like tomcat are not included yet. Also, I just noticed the execute bit is not being set for run.sh. Furthermore, while the server starts up without error, I haven't done any extensive testing on it.

      Please ask any questions here and report all problems to http://jira.jboss.com/jira/browse/JBBUILD

      I will have a release with documentation tomorrow.
