How to build PMD?
You’ll need to have a
~/.m2/toolchains.xml file setup with jdk 1.6 (for pmd 5.3.x), jdk 1.7 (for pmd 5.4.x and pmd 5.5.x)
and jdk 1.8 (for some features in pmd 5.5.x). See maven toolchains.
A example file can be found here: example-toolchains.xml.
Use maven in the top-level directory:
mvn clean package
This will create the zip files in the directory
cd pmd-dist/target ls *.zip
That’s all !
How to build the documentation (maven site)?
Building the maven site is done with the following commands:
mvn clean install -DskipTests=true mvn install site site:stage -Psite
You’ll find the built site in the directory
