Building

Camel uses Maven as its build tool. If you don't fancy using Maven you can use your IDE directly or Download a distribution or JAR.

Prequisites

Required:

  • Download and install Maven. (Currently Maven 2.0.9 is used to build the official releases, some components will not build with 2.1+)
  • Get the latest Source
  • Java 1.5

Optional:

  • Prince should be in the executable PATH to generate the PDF documentation

Maven options

To build camel maven has to be configured to use more memory

set MAVEN_OPTS=-Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=128m

A normal build

mvn install

Doing a Quick Build

The following avoids running all the unit test cases, we just skip the test running phase and not the building part

mvn -Dtest=false -DfailIfNoTests=false clean install 

Notice that from Camel 1.4 we have made it even easier:

mvn -Dtest=false clean install

Using an IDE

If you prefer to use an IDE then you can auto-generate the IDE's project files using maven plugins. e.g.

mvn eclipse:eclipse

or

mvn idea:idea

Adding Camel Eclipse templates to your workspace

mvn -Psetup.eclipse -Declipse.workspace.dir=/path/to/your/workspace

You can also find some helpful notes on usage here.

Importing into Eclipse

If you have not already done so, you will need to make Eclipse aware of the Maven repository so that it can build everything. In the preferences, go to Java->Build Path->Classpath and define a new Classpath Variable named M2_REPO that points to your local Maven repository (i.e., ~/.m2/repository on Unix and c:\Documents and Settings\<user>\.m2\repository on Windows).

You can also get Maven to do this for you:

mvn eclipse:add-maven-repo -Declipse.workspace=/path/to/the/workspace/ 

Building with checkstyle

To enable source style checking with checkstyle, build Camel with the -Psourcecheck parameter

mvn -Psourcecheck clean install

Building source jars

If you want to build jar files with the source code, that for instance Eclipse can important so you can debug the Camel code as well. Then you can run this command from the camel root folder:

mvn clean source:jar install -Dtest=false
