To build the source you will need to install JDK 1.8.
The build uses the Maven wrapper so you don’t have to install a specific version of Maven. To enable the tests for Redis you should run the server before bulding. See below for more information on how to run Redis.
The main build command is
$ ./mvnw clean install
You can also add '-DskipTests' if you like, to avoid running the tests.
You can also install Maven (>=3.3.3) yourself and run the
Be aware that you might need to increase the amount of memory
available to Maven by setting a
The projects that require middleware generally include a
docker-compose.yml, so consider using
Docker Compose to run the middeware servers
in Docker containers. See the README in the
repository for specific instructions about the common cases of mongo,
rabbit and redis.
There is a "full" profile that will generate documentation. You can build just the documentation by executing
$ ./mvnw clean package -DskipTests -P full -pl spring-cloud-dataflow-docs -am
If you don’t have an IDE preference we would recommend that you use Spring Tools Suite or Eclipse when working with the code. We use the m2eclipe eclipse plugin for maven support. Other IDEs and tools should also work without issue.
We recommend the m2eclipe eclipse plugin when working with eclipse. If you don’t already have m2eclipse installed it is available from the "eclipse marketplace".
Unfortunately m2e does not yet support Maven 3.3, so once the projects
are imported into Eclipse you will also need to tell m2eclipse to use
.settings.xml file for the projects. If you do not do this you
may see many different errors related to the POMs in the
projects. Open your Eclipse preferences, expand the Maven
preferences, and select User Settings. In the User Settings field
click Browse and navigate to the Spring Cloud project you imported
.settings.xml file in that project. Click Apply and
then OK to save the preference changes.
Alternatively you can copy the repository settings from
