Building the jar file
The source distribution does not contain all needed libraries. If you want to build SQL Workbench/J yourself it is highly recommended to clone or download the Git repository to automatically get everything you need.
To build the jar file, use ant while the scripts directory is your current directory. If the build is successful, dist/sqlworkbench.jar will be created.
The default Ant target make-dev-jar does not build the manual.
Building the manual
To build the manual, please clone or download the corresponding Git repository.
- Copy the Docbook distribution to etc/docbook on the same level where the manual subdirectory is
- Copy the FOP distribution to etc/fop on the same level where the manual subdirectory is
Go into the manual subdirectory and type ant pdf to build the PDF or ant publish-dev to build the HTML manual.
