In order to develop the ArgoUML source it is absolutely mandatory that
you work with ArgoUML from the source repository.
How you checkout this is described in
Section 2.5, “Downloading from the Subversion repository”.
Notice that the source repository contains not only a set of source
files but a complete development environment with required tools for
working with ArgoUML.
2.3.1. What do I need to build ArgoUML?
These are the tools not included in the repository that
you need to work with ArgoUML.
A computer with an Internet connection and free disk space for your work.
Around 150MB to download everything from the repository.
(Currently September 2006 it is 147MB.)
Around 200MB to download all and build the tool and the documentation.
(Currently September 2006 it is 192MB.)
350MB should be enough to build it all
(Javadocs, documentation, classes, ...).
(Currently September 2006 it is 299MB.)
Subversion for getting the files
and committing source code updates.
You can also use an IDE with a built-in subversion client.
JDK (including the Java compiler)
For building the documentation from DocBook format,
you also need the following tools:
DocBook XSL style sheets.
Rules exist in the file
for downloading this correctly.
Used by FOP for including PNG pictures.
Download the file
Extract the file
Most unzip applications allow you to specify the output location.
If you are using one of these, this step can be combined with the next.
If the previous step put the extracted file elsewhere, copy or move this file into the
2.3.2. Configuring Subversion
To reduce problems with line endings and
to get the headers working,
we use the properties on files in the Subversion repository
according to the table below.
Table 2.4. Changes done
|svn:keywords||Author Date Id Revision||
All text files, Java files, XML files.
This is for the Id-tag at the top of all source files
and the Date-tag on some web pages.
All text files, Java files, XML files,
i.e. almost all non-binary files.
All Windows batch files: *.bat.
All Linux shell files: *.sh.
This is for the tools of the development environment to work properly.
The properties described here are project conventions and should be
applied to the files in the repository.
This is normally only needed when creating new files because
the existing files should have their properties set correctly.
Alas, Subversion and the Tigris set-up does not allow us in the project
to enforce this from the Subversion server end.
Instead we rely on each developer and the subversion client installation
on each developer's machine to perform this correctly.
To get your subversion client to help you in this,
make sure the configuration in your subversion client config file
contains settings for this.
Your subversion client config file is
enable-auto-props = yes
### The format of the entries is:
### file-name-pattern = propname[=value][;propname[=value]...]
### The file-name-pattern can contain wildcards (such as '*' and
### '?'). All entries which match will be applied to the file.
### Note that auto-props functionality must be enabled, which
### is typically done by setting the 'enable-auto-props' option.
