The build process for OpenCms 9 is using Gradle ( www.gradle.org ) instead of Apache Ant. The great advantage of the Gradle build process is an integrated dependency management so that libraries required to build OpenCms are downloaded automatically.
Moreover, OpenCms 9 provides a script based setup in addition to the traditional web interface. This allows the installation of OpenCms directly from the command line.
In this 2 part workshop, Tobias will first demonstrate how the new Gradle based build process in OpenCms 9 works. He will explain how to configure popular IDEs such as Eclipse to build the OpenCms core as well as individual module extensions. Tobias will then present the automatic setup process and show how to configure various options for the OpenCms installation.
