WSO2 products, such as Application Server are shipped as binary packs, which contains a wide variety of features to support your enterprise requirements. You can easily download the binary distribution, and get started with the product immediately. However, as developers, you can download the source code and build the product as shown below.
The following topics describe this process:
Checking out the source
The source code of all WSO2 products are maintained in GitHub as a list of repositories. Each of the WSO2 products are built using the source code stored in several of these repositories. Given below is the Git repository for AS 5.3.0 release, which you can use to build a fresh product pack.
WSO2 AS 5.3.0
Follow the steps given below to download each of the above repositories for AS 5.3.0.
Clone the above mentioned Git repository to a folder of your choice. The location of the extracted source is referred to as <
git clone https://github.com/wso2/product-as<
Navigate to the <
AS_SOURCE_HOME>directory using the following command:
Check out the tag (branch), which corresponds to the AS 5.3.0 release, to a folder of your choice:
git checkout -b <REMOTE_BRANCH/TAG> <LOCAL_BRANCH>
git checkout -b v5.3.0 v5.3.0
Building the product
Ensure that the following prerequisites are in place before you build:
- Make sure the build server has an active Internet connection to download dependencies while building.
- Install Maven and JDK. See Installation Prerequisites for compatible versions.
- Set the environment variable
MAVEN_OPTS=”-Xms1024m -Xmx4096m -XX:MaxPermSize=1024m” to avoid the Maven
Use the following maven commands to build your product:
The binary and source distributions.
|The binary and source distributions, without running any of the unit tests.|
|The binary and source distributions, without running any of the unit tests, in offline mode. This can be done only if you have already built the source at least once.|
