Building Cayenne


Here are the MAVEN_OPTS that should be used for the build. MAVEN_OPTS variable can either be exported in a shell, or placed in $HOME/.mavenrc. Optimal values vary from platform to platform and between Cayenne versions, but these should probably work for everyone:

MAVEN_OPTS=" -Xms512m"

Building with Maven

Depending on what you want to do, there are various flavors of the builds discussed below. All builds should be executed from the root folder of the source checkout.

The most common flavor is building Cayenne and executing unit and integration tests :

mvn clean verify

For the build to produce a release-like assembly, activate “assembly” profile. Additionally activate a profile specific for the target platform of a given assembly (otherwise assembly profile won’t produce anything).

Source assembly:

mvn clean verify -Passembly,src

Cross-platform assembly:

mvn clean verify -Passembly,generic

Windows assembly:

mvn clean verify -Passembly,windows

Mac OS X assembly:

mvn clean verify -Passembly,mac

Multiple assemblies built at once:

mvn clean verify -Passembly,src,generic,mac
