I won’t say that my contribution to this work will be tremendous, but it’s nice to know a little more if you want to try out building the ex SpringSource DM Server
A lot is already available using the Virgo project documentation : http://wiki.eclipse.org/Virgo/Build
But to sum it up, you just need to install Git, and clone the existing repositories available at http://wiki.eclipse.org/Virgo/Source. The little tweakings you’ll need are more about MacOs’s profound attachment to Java 1.5 and the Virgo’s clear intention to move-on to (at least) Java 1.6 🙂
So to change your default Java 1.5 JDK Configuration you’ve got the perfect utility tool bundled within Mac’s twisted flesh, file:///Applications/Utilities/Java Preferences.app
Just drag and drop Java 6 to the top and you’ll be just fine.
Next step is to make Ant understand your intention to move on as well, just export the JAVA_HOME env variable to the right value :
And once again you’ll be just fine.
