- Learn a lot about WebObjects and EOF (and Java development styles)
- Easily browse and search the source
- Work with a specific source control version (teams, quality control, development cycles)
- Provide opportunities to submit patches for bug fixes or enhancements
- Add logging statements in Wonder source so you can better understand what is going when tracking down hard to find bugs
- Discover the many Hidden Treasures of Wonder.
As of March 25th, 2011 the Wonder source code is now maintained on GitHub at https://github.com/projectwonder. So you'll need to be familiar with the Git Source Code Management system. You will use it to checkout a local copy of the repository (a "clone" in Git terms) allowing you to have direct access to the Wonder source.
- Clone the source repository from github into a new directory named "WonderSource".
Note title Read Only
Note the URL shown here is the public read-only URL. Committers should use the SSH form of the URL for read-write
git clone git://github.com/projectwonder/wonder.git WonderSource
- Navigate into the working copy root
Note title WebObjects 5.3.3 Compatability
If you are still using old WebObjects 5.3.3, then you need to execute this git command to switch to the branch for WebObjects 5.3.3:
git checkout --track origin/Wonder_5_0_0_Legacy
Assuming you now have a "cloned" copy of the Wonder source code, you can build the frameworks to the default (
~/Roots) with the following command:
- Build the frameworks from the "cloned" source.
- Install the frameworks (this just copies the built frameworks from ~/Roots to the runtime Frameworks directory, usually at /Library/Frameworks)
sudo ant frameworks.install
Installing and Upgrading
Assuming you already cloned and installed Wonder from source using the method outlined above, you can use the following procedure pull the latest changes into your local repository.
