To build all of the Apache UIMA Java SDK
(including the docbooks and the binary assembly) and install these artifacts
to your local maven repository, do the following commands. We'll assume
you want to do this work in a local disk directory on your build machine.
First, as an example, create the local build directory by using whatever your operating system's
commands are for creating this. For instance, in Windows, you might pick "myWorkingCopy"
as the name of your local build directory, and create it at the top level, using the command:
UIMA has several projects. The main, core project, is the Java SDK. This is named "uimaj" -
the last letter, "j" stands for "Java". Here are sample commands that check out the "trunk"
(most current) version
into a subdirectory of
and build it using:
- cd \myWorkingCopy
svn checkout https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/uima/uimaj/trunk uimaj
Note: if you're using Linux or MacOS,
change the directory separator character to a forward slash ( "/" ).
Note: to build a particular release. instead of the most current (and possibly, not working)
version under development, replace "trunk" with "tags/" + the svn name
of that release,
such as "tags/uimaj-2.9.0".
If you're looking for the lib containing all the built Jars,
and unzip/untar the binary distribution artifact, named something like
uimaj-[version]-bin.zip or uimaj-[version]-bin.tar.gz.
Then, look inside the unpacked result for a lib directory - it will have the Jars that were built.
