Building and deploying


Before being able to build and run this project, you need to download and install:

Static website and WAR

The documentation website and WAR can be built by running mvn clean install on the documentation project. This will create and install:

  • target/sitegen: a local copy of the static website

  • A WAR file for installing the documentation on an application server

  • If Prince XML has been installed, it will also create the PDF manuals

Live website for editing

Running mvn jetty:run in the documentation project allows you to preview the resulting website on http://localhost:8080. Just edit any page and hit refresh in the browser to have a look at the result.

Deploying a new documentation site copy

If you're a committer, you can also deploy the site directly by running mvn scm-publish:publish-scm afterwards. This will upload a new copy to
