Pentaho Metadata uses the maven framework.
This is a maven project, and to build it use the following command
$ mvn clean install
Optionally you can specify -Drelease to trigger obfuscation and/or uglification (as needed)
Optionally you can specify -Dmaven.test.skip=true to skip the tests (even though you shouldn't as you know)
The build result will be a Pentaho package located in
This will run all unit tests in the project (and sub-modules). To run integration tests as well, see Integration Tests below.
$ mvn test
If you want to remote debug a single java unit test (default port is 5005):
$ cd core $ mvn test -Dtest=<<YourTest>> -Dmaven.surefire.debug
In addition to the unit tests, there are integration tests that test cross-module operation. This will run the integration tests.
$ mvn verify -DrunITs
To run a single integration test:
$ mvn verify -DrunITs -Dit.test=<<YourIT>>
To run a single integration test in debug mode (for remote debugging in an IDE) on the default port of 5005:
$ mvn verify -DrunITs -Dit.test=<<YourIT>> -Dmaven.failsafe.debug
To skip test
$ mvn clean install -DskipTests
To get log as text file
$ mvn clean install test >log.txt
