Getting the latest release

You can download source and binaries from our download page.

Alternatively, you can pull it from the central Maven repositories:

<dependency>
  <groupId>commons-validator</groupId>
  <artifactId>commons-validator</artifactId>

Building

Building requires a Java JDK and Apache Maven. The required Java version is found in the pom.xml as the maven.compiler.source property.

From a command shell, run mvn without arguments to invoke the default Maven goal to run all tests and checks.

  • No tabs! Please use spaces for indentation.
  • Respect the existing code style for each file.
  • Create minimal diffs - disable on save actions like reformat source code or organize imports. If you feel the source code should be reformatted create a separate PR for this change.
  • Provide JUnit tests for your changes and make sure your changes don't break any existing tests by running mvn.
