Obtaining the sources
If you want to build jwma yourself, then you will most likely want to checkout
the latest version. The project's SourceForge CVS repository can be checked out
through anonymous (pserver) CVS with the following instruction set (when prompted
for a password for anonymous, simply press the Enter key):
cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/jwma login
Updates from within the module's directory do not need the -d parameter. Probably
you might want to issue an update with the -P flag to purge empty directories
from your working copy.
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/jwma co webmail
Alternatively you can download the source distribution package, however, please
ensure that you are up to date by checking the mailing
list, and the bug
tracker for recent changes/bug fixes.
jwma's build procedures are based upon ant, which is a great build tool (in Java)
developed and distributed by the Apache Software Foundation. You can find it at:
Ant is integrated, so it comes with the checkout, or the source package you downloaded.
With the included build scripts, you can invoke ant from the shell:
./build.sh <build target> (on Unix and Linux platforms)
build.bat <build target> (on Windows platforms)
The command line parameters are passed directly to ant (which allows you to pass
some if necessary) and there is an annotated list of available
build targets (right below).

default compiler, if you prefer your JDK's compiler, ensure you have
tools.jar in your classpath and replace "jikes"
