Building from Source

Getting the source

Checkout the whole project from CVS by running:

 cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/displaytag login

 cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/displaytag co -P displaytag-all

(When prompted for a password simply press the Enter key)

Installing Maven

Displaytag uses maven 2 for build and site generation. First of all, you need to download and install Maven (minimum required version 2.0.1) from maven.apache.org. Follow the instructions on the Maven site on how to do this.

Run it!

Go to the displaytag-doc folder, type

 mvn install

and watch the show. For this you need a working internet connection since maven will first try to download all the needed libraries from a remote repository.
