This is the uber-repo. To build the entire codebase, get this project and its sub-modules:
git clone http://github.com/apache/brooklyn/ cd brooklyn git submodule init git submodule update --remote --merge --recursive
And then, with jdk 1.8+ and maven 3.1+ installed:
mvn clean install -Dno-go-client -Dno-rpm
The results are in
brooklyn-dist/dist/target/, including a tar and a zip. Or to run straight after the build, do:
pushd brooklyn-dist/dist/target/brooklyn-dist/brooklyn/ bin/brooklyn launch
