Building from Source


  • Make sure you have installed a Java Development Kit (JDK) version 8 or later.
  • Make sure you have sbt installed.
  • Graphviz is needed for the scaladoc generation build task, which is part of the release.

Running the Build

  • Open a command window and change directory to your preferred base directory
  • Use git to clone the repo or download a source release from https://pekko.apache.org (and unzip or untar it, as appropriate)
  • Change directory to the directory where you installed the source (you should have a file called build.sbt in this directory)
  • sbt compile compiles the main source for project default version of Scala (2.13)
    • sbt +compile will compile for all supported versions of Scala
  • sbt test will compile the code and run the unit tests
  • sbt testQuick similar to test but when repeated in shell mode will only run failing tests
  • sbt package will build the jars
    • the jars will built into target dirs of the various modules
    • for the the ‘discovery-aws-api’ module, the jar will be built to discovery-aws-api/target/scala-2.13/
  • sbt publishLocal will push the jars to your local Apache Ivy repository
  • sbt publishM2 will push the jars to your local Apache Maven repository
  • sbt docs/paradox will build the docs (the ones describing the module features)
    • sbt docs/paradoxBrowse does the same but will open the docs in your browser when complete
    • the index.html file will appear in target/paradox/site/main/
  • sbt unidoc will build the Javadocs for all the modules and load them to one place (may require Graphviz, see Prerequisites above)
    • the index.html file will appear in target/scala-2.13/unidoc/
  • sbt sourceDistGenerate will generate source release to target/dist/
  • The version number that appears in filenames and docs is derived, by default. The derived version contains the most git commit id or the date/time (if the directory is not under git control).
    • You can set the version number explicitly when running sbt commands
      • eg sbt "set ThisBuild / version := \"1.0.0\"; sourceDistGenerate"
    • Or you can add a file called version.sbt to the same directory that has the build.sbt containing something like
      • ThisBuild / version := "1.0.0"
