Building Sentry

Building Sentry requires the following tools:

  • Apache Maven 3.2.5+ (Might hit issues with pentaho library with older maven versions)
  • Java JDK7 (can't access TBase errors with JDK8)

To compile Sentry, run:

mvn install -DskipTests

To run Sentry tests, run:

mvn test

To build a distribution, run:

mvn install

The final Sentry distribution artifacts will be in $project/sentry-dist/target/.
