Build Instructions

Download and do mvn install.

$ cd java
$ mvn clean install


There is a pom.xml in the base directory but that should only be used for the Zuul build.

The issue is that currently StackForge’s bare-precise system only has Maven 2 on it and at least one of the modules of monasca-common requires Maven 3.

In order to get around this problem, the pom.xml in the base directory uses the exec-maven-plugin to run the script This script checks if the version of mvn is Maven 3 and if it is not, it downloads Maven 3 and then uses it to run the build in the java directory.

In addition, the script copies the jar files that get built from java/*/target directories to the target directory in the base project directory. This is because the StackForge “monasca-common-localrepo-upload” job uploads any jar files from that directory to Copying the jar files to that directory made it so there didn’t have to be changes made to the “monasca-common-localrepo-upload” job. The build for monasca-thresh downloads the jars it depends on from that location on

A change has been submitted to StackForge to switch to bare-trusty for this build in the hopes that those systems will have maven 3, but it is not known how long that change will take to be accepted.
