Guide to building Continuum

Why would I want to build Continuum?

You might want to build Continuum yourself for one of two reasons:

  • to try out a bleeding edge feature or bugfix (issues can be found in JIRA), but you can try our SNAPSHOTs:
  • to fix a problem you are having and submit a patch to the development team.

Note that you don't need to build Continuum for day to day use. While we encourage getting involved and fixing bugs that you find, for day to day use we recommend using the latest release.

Checking out the sources

All of the source code for Continuum and its related libraries is in a Subversion repository. You can also browse the repository, or checkout specific modules directly.

All SVN instructions are available on the Source Repository page.

Building the sources


  • JDK 5 or greater
  • Maven 2


To build Continuum, you run this command from the top (trunk) directory:

mvn clean install
