Building Struts-Layout

People wanting to compile Struts-Layout themselves, or to hack the source can follow these instructions :

Getting the source code

The source code is packaged with the distribution. Just download the distribution you want (specific version or nightly build) to get its source code

The source code can also be extracted from the SVN repository.

Eclipse

The authors are using Eclipse to develop Struts-Layout, and the source contains the Eclipse configuration file.

Just import the whole project into Eclipse to compile it.

Maven 1

Maven 1 configuration files (project.xml, project.properties) are available at the root of the project.

Just cd into the project directory and launch "maven jar" to build the taglib.

Maven 2

A Maven 2 configuration file (pom.xml) is available at the root of the project.

Just cd into the project directory and launch "mvn package" to build the taglib.

It won't compile !

Be careful that the source code contains UTF-8 characters. This must be specified to the compiler in some way if you're not using one of the previous method to build Struts-Layout
