thanks for trying out Jangaroo!
First, we do have a CI that builds Jangaroo with all tests and it currently is completely green (to be more precise Jenkins-blue).
However, the idea of Maven is that there is no need for you to build jangaroo-tools locally at all.
Using the right configuration in your pom.xml, Maven automatically downloads all needed Maven
libraries and plugins from Maven's central repository (or any other repository you specify, but
Jangaroo, as an Open Source project, is deployed to Maven Central).
Just have a look at the Jangaroo Tutorial, especially the part about compiling:
I'm afraid the version numbers are quite outdated, but you can watch the release notes page to always use the latest version:
As you can see there, we still release regularly, and try to answer questions here in the forum promptly.
If you have considerable amounts of code to compile, you should organize them in multiple Maven modules.
You can find a detailed description of Jangaroo's Maven build process here:
This documentation explains how the "Jangaroo Quickstart" project works, which is available on Github:
If you are still interested in building jangaroo-tools locally:
Maven is supposed to lead to reproducible builds, but there are some external dependencies.
To reproduce what went wrong with your local build, I'd need to know
* the Jangaroo branch you checked out (probably "master"),
* the Java (JDK) version used to build, and
* the Maven version.
You can get both Maven and Java version in one go by executing
Please post the output of this command, and, while at it, should there still be an error, please attach the error output!
