The binary distribution contains the API Manager binary files for both MS Windows and Linux operating systems, compressed into a single ZIP file. This distribution is recommended for most users.
Build from source
WSO2 invites you to contribute by checking out the source from the Subversion (SVN) source control system using the following commands. For information on using Subversion, see.
You can download the complete WSO2 Carbon platform, which is recommended if you intend to modify the source. You can check out the complete source anonymously from SVN with the following commands (note that this version of the API Manager is based on Carbon 4.1.2). The Carbon project comes in three sub projects: Orbit, Kernel, and Platform. Download and build them in that particular order.
$ svn checkoutOrbit
$ svn checkoutKernel
$ svn checkoutPlatform
Following are the commands you can run to create complete release artifacts of WSO2 API Manager, including the binary and source distributions. If you only want to build the API Manager, use the
-Dproduct=apimgt option as shown. If you want to build the entire Carbon core project, omit the
|mvn clean install -Dproduct=apimgt||To create the complete release artifacts of the product including the binary and source distributions.|
|mvn clean install -Dmaven.test.skip=true -Dproduct=apimgt||To create the complete release artifacts of the product including the binary and source distributions, without running any of the unit tests.|
|mvn clean install -Dmaven.test.skip=true -Dproduct=apimgt -o||To create the complete release artifacts of the product including the binary and source distributions, without running any of the unit tests, in offline mode. This can be done only if you've already built the source at least once.|
If you are a committer, you can commit your changes using the following command (SVN will prompt you for your password):
$ svn commit --username your-username -m "A message"
Access through a firewall
If you are behind a corporate firewall that is blocking HTTP access to the Subversion repository, you can try the developer connection:
$ svn checkout https://svn.wso2.org/repos/wso2/trunk/carbon carbon
Access through a proxy
The Subversion client can be configured to access through a proxy.
- Specify the proxy to use in the servers configuration file in
~/.subversiondirectory for Linux/Unix
%APPDATA%\Subversionhidden directory for Windows. (Try
- There are comments in the file explaining what to do. If you don't have this file, get the latest Subversion client and run any command. It will create the configuration directory and template files.
Example : Edit the servers file and add something similar to:
[global] http-proxy-host = your.proxy.name http-proxy-port = 3128
