As of May 21th, 2013 the Wonder source code is now maintained on GitHub at https://github.com/wocommunity/wonder. You'll need to be familiar with the Git Source Code Management system. Here's a good place to start. You will use Git to checkout a local copy of the repository (a "clone" in Git terms) allowing you to have direct access to the Wonder source.
Instead of constantly re-downloading and installing the latest Project Wonder binaries you should work directly with the latest source code. It has several advantages including:
Open a terminal and navigate to a directory where you want to maintain a source "working copy" and just use the following commands to clone Wonder source to your computer.
git clone git://github.com/wocommunity/wonder.git WonderSource
If "git://" does not work for you then use "http://"
The URL above is the public, read-only URL.
You should see output something like this:

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:
You should get output like this:
If you have any trouble or errors due to your local repository getting corrupted, simply delete the entire local repository (the
The best way to make use of Project Wonder is obviously to import the source code projects directly into your Eclipse workspace. Why would you be reading this page if that isn't what you are trying to do?! Detailed instructions are here: Working with Wonder source in Eclipse
WOlips' "Incremental Builder" is an incredibly helpful feature during development, but it does things that the Ant deployment build does not do. If you are either using WOLips to build your WebObjects Applications (WOLips Ant Tools > Install) or are running Hudson/Jenkins locally to do it, you must also build and install your workspace's Frameworks that your Application depends upon – including your own, Project Wonder's and any others. The standard Ant build does NOT do this for you.
For building and installing the Wonder Frameworks, please see the standard Building and Installing WO Frameworks with Ant pages.
If you have both Source Code projects and the built, Binary Frameworks installed, you need to make sure you build all source code frameworks that your project depends upon first. The standard Ant build does not do this for you. Ant builds only use binary frameworks so if the installed frameworks are not up to date your Ant build could fail, or worse, succeed but contain run-time errors.
