tl;dr: The Taverna code base is no longer maintained and is provided here for archival purposes.
In 2020 the Taverna community voted to retire Taverna as a project and withdraw the code base from the Apache Software Foundation.
This code base remains available under the Apache License 2.0 (see License below), but is now simply called Taverna rather than
Apache Taverna (incubating).
While the code base is no longer actively maintained, Pull Requests are welcome to the GitHub organization taverna, which may infrequently be considered by remaining volunteer caretakers.
Releases 2015-2018 during incubation at Apache Software Foundation are available from the ASF Download Archive https://archive.apache.org/dist/incubator/taverna/
Releases 2014 from the University of Manchester are on BitBucket https://bitbucket.org/taverna/
Releases 2009-2013 from myGrid are on LaunchPad https://launchpad.net/taverna/
Releases 2003-2009 are on SourceForge https://sourceforge.net/projects/taverna/files/taverna/
Binary JARs for Taverna are available from Maven Central https://repo.maven.apache.org/maven2/org/apache/taverna/ or the myGrid Maven repository https://repository.mygrid.org.uk/
OSGi-based plugin system, including online updates. Written for Taverna, probably usable for any OSGi-based command line/desktop product.
This product includes software developed at The Apache Software Foundation.

To build, use
mvn clean install
This will build each module and run their tests.
If you are building on Windows, ensure you unpack this source code to a folder with a short path name lenght, e.g.
C:\src - as Windows has a limitation on the total path length which might otherwise prevent this code from building successfully.
To skip the tests (these can be timeconsuming), use:
mvn clean install -DskipTests
If you are modifying this source code independent of the Taverna project, you may not want to run the Rat Maven plugin that enforces Apache headers in every source file - to disable it, try:
mvn clean install -Drat.skip=true
The Taverna OSGi modules are split into
-api contain Java interfaces and abstract classes and minimal dependencies, while
-impl contain the corresponding implementation(s).
See the taverna-osgi javadoc for details on each OSGi service. In brief:
PluginManagerusing Apache Maven, including deployment to plugin sites.
Path, including hashsum checking using neighbouring
.md5URIs. Used by
~/.taverna-cl-3.0.0/will be the application's home directory on Unix.
The OSGi services should be discoverable as Spring services, e.g. by adding to your
