Building From Source

This document gives details of how to build the SAWSDL4J from source. The source jar file (with the maven build scripts) can be found in the downloads page. Note that SAWSDL4J requires a runtime and a compiler at Java 5 level since some API additions are based on Java 5.

The prefered build system in SAWSDL4J is maven. More specifically maven 2. Downloads of maven and Information of how to install and work with maven can be found in the maven web site. In a quick note mvn install should do the job if maven is properly installed.

There is no need to download jars or any other artifacts seperately since Maven will automatically download the dependencies. This however means that a working internet connection is required while building (at least for the first build)
