Building From the Source Code

Pre-requisites for Building

Apache Maven Build

The Apache Maven build is a comprehensive build that runs unit tests, constructs the SchemaCrawler jar, and can also create the project web-site.

You can create the SchemaCrawler distribution by running mvn -Ddistrib package. The SchemaCrawler distribution will be created in the target of the schemacrawler-distrib module.

Eclipse and IntelliJ IDEA

Before importing the various SchemaCrawler projects into Eclipse or IntelliJ IDEA, make sure that you have a successful Apache Maven build. Apache Maven will download all the dependencies needed to build SchemaCrawler.
