Building Abator from Source

All Abator distributions include source code. The only compile time dependency Abator has is on ant.jar - for successful compilation of the included Ant task. It is straight forward to compile Abator from source - simply unzip the source in an Abator distribution and compile it with your favorite tool.

If you would like to build Abator from the very latest version of the source code at Apache then follow these steps:

  1. Do a SubVersion checkout of the Abator source tree from the location (You may use any SubVersion client you prefer. We recommend TortoiseSVN.)
  2. The build file requires that ANT_HOME and JAVA_HOME environment variables be defined. If they are not already defined on your system, then modify the file ../build/setupCmdLine.bat to specify the proper values on your machine.
  3. Run the Ant build script by running the batch file ../build/build.bat from the checked out directory.
