Maven Quickstart

This guide is designed to get developers up and running as quick as possible. For a more comprehensive guide see the Maven Guide.

Check out source code

Check out the source code from the git repository.:

git clone git://github.com/geoserver/geoserver.git geoserver

To list the available branches.:

% git branch
   2.14.x
   2.15.x
 * master

Choose master for the latest development.:

% git checkout master

Or chose a stable branch for versions less likely to change often:

% git checkout 2.14.x

In this example we will pretend that your source code is in a directory called geoserver, but a more descriptive name is recommended.

Command line build

#. Change directory to the root of the source tree and execute the maven build command:

cd geoserver/src
mvn install -DskipTests -T 2C

This will result in significant downloading of dependencies on the first build.
  1. A successful build will result in output that ends with something like the following:
