VLMa build HOWTO
You need the following softwares to build VLMa:
- A Java SDK version 5.0 or higher
You can check whether your Java installation is suitable by checking that the javac executable is available and that the version is higher than 5.0 (javac -version).
VLMa uses Maven as a build system. If you are not familiar with this tool, check the 5 minutes guide.
- VLMa source tree
$ git clone git://git.videolan.org/vlma.git
Once you have downloaded VLMa source code, change directory to the root of the project and type:
$ mvn install
Maven will download VLMa dependencies and build the project according to the configuration located in the pom.xml files.
This method is currently not working(17/08/2014). Maven returns dependency errors during VLMa Core building. vthr.videolan.org is unknown host. At the moment theres no way known to build.
