WebObjects/Project WONDER/Installing

There are two ways to install Project WOnder -- binary distribution or building from source.

Nightly Build ServerEdit

The easiest way is to install the binary distribution. m Dimension Technology runs a nightly build server for Project WOnder that preserves historical builds at http://webobjects.mdimension.com/wonder . Simply grab the Wonder-VERSIONNUMBER-Frameworks.tar.gz archive and uncompress it into your /Library/Frameworks folder, and you have successfully installed Project WOnder.

Build from SourceEdit

The second, slightly more annoying, way to install WOnder is to build it yourself from the SourceForge CVS tree.

  1. cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@wonder.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/wonder login
  2. There is no password
  3. cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@wonder.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/wonder co -P Wonder
  4. cd Wonder
  5. You will need to make sure you have a wobuild.properties file in ~/Library/. The contents should be similar to this:
 wo.dir.root=/
 wo.woroot=/
 wo.dir.user.home.library.frameworks=/Users/username/Library/Frameworks
 wo.dir.local=/
 wo.wosystemroot=/System
 wo.dir.library=/System/Library
 wo.dir.user.home.library=/Users/username/Library
 wo.dir.local.library=/Library
 wo.dir.library.frameworks=/System/Library/Frameworks
 wo.dir.local.library.frameworks=/Library/Frameworks
 wo.wolocalroot=/
 wo.dir.system=/System
 eclipse.home=/Developer/Applications/Java\ Tools/Eclipse/

Lastly, run "ant dist", "ant frameworks", or "ant examples".

This will build all the frameworks and applications into ~/Roots.
