The QifCon project is build via Maven 2.0.4+.


Once you have followed the instructions to install Maven there are not project specific steps to follow.

Using Maven


Run mvn clean to clean the project.


Run mvn install to build the project.

If you get build failures because of unit tests then run mvn surefire-report:report > to see the reasons for the failures. You will need to open the "target/site/surefire-report.html" for the failing project in a web browser.

Creating a web site

Run mvn site to create the project web site in target/site.

If you would like to dynamically see the project web site use mvn site:run and then browse to localhost:8080 . Any changes to files can be seen by refreshing your web browser.

Configuring Eclipse

Run mvn eclipse:eclipse to automatically create the necessary Eclipse project files.

You can then import the modules as Eclipse projects by following these steps:

  • Open the Navigator view (Window -> Show View -> Navigator)
  • Open the qifcon project and delete the ".project" file. If you do not do this step, when you attempt to import the projects the list will be blank.
  • File -> Import... -> General -> Existing Projects into Workspace
  • Click browse for "Select root directory" and select the "qifcon" root directory. All modules should be available for selection (if the list is blank, make sure you deleted the .project file from the previous steps)

You may wish to "Team -> Disconnect" these imported projects as this "Project's within a Project Workspace" is not supported fully and there are issues with Subversion. The only drawback with this method is that you need to "File -> Refresh" (or F5) all the projects prior to committing to the repository and that you need to use the qifcon project root to synchronize against (you can't use the imported projects).
