Cannonical Source Repository

The sources of Apache OpenWebBeans are maintained in the Apache Software Foundation gitbox repository. This is the repository where all committers work on. It gets mirrored to GitHub in both directions. That means you can either push to Apache GitBox or GitHub.

The master branch currently contains our implementation of the CDI-2.0 specification and is considered production ready.

The sources can be checked out read only with the following command:


Maintenance releases targetting older CDI specifications

CDI-1.2 - OpenWebBeans-1.7.x

Building OpenWebBeans

Apache OpenWebBeans can be built by using Apache Maven. Just go into the source directory and execute

The following maven profiles exist in our build to trigger additional build steps and configuration:

  • tck - for executing the CDI (JSR-299, JSR-346 resp JSR-365) standalone TCK
  • jsr330-tck - for executing the JSR-330 ‘atinject’ TCK

In master they are all activated by default and run every time you build OpenWebBeans.

For older OpenWebBeans versions you might enable them manually.
