Taverna Project Retired

tl;dr: The Taverna code base is no longer maintained and is provided here for archival purposes.

From 2014 till 2020 this code base was maintained by the Apache Incubator project Apache Taverna (incubating) (see web archive and podling status).

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While the code base is no longer actively maintained, Pull Requests are welcome to the GitHub organization taverna, which may infrequently be considered by remaining volunteer caretakers.

To build, use

mvn clean install

This will build each module and run their tests.

Building on Windows

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.

Skipping tests

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
