Building JFoxSOAF

Building JFoxSOAF is a little different than your typical Java build because JFoxSOAF uses ant to build itself! Fortunately, the details of this have been encapsulated in a separate build file called build-bootstrap.xml. This document details the necessary steps to successfully build JFoxSOAF from source.

Before you can build JFoxSOAF, you'll need to make sure you have Ant 1.5 or higher, and Maven installed on your system. Don't forget to install the optional.jar included with Ant. In addition, you'll also need the JUnit unit testing framework installed. Be sure to install junit.jar in your $ANT_HOME/lib directory. Failure to do so will result in build errors.
