This page will describe how to build the ESAPI Swingset in Eclipse.

These instructions assume you already have Eclipse, a JDK, Maven, m2clipse, and subclipse installed.

Downloading the current trunk

  • In Eclipse, select File -> New -> Project.
  • Select "Checkout projects from SVN" and click "Next."
  • Click "Next" to "Create a new repository location."
  • Enter in the URL field and click "Next." If you are a committer, use https.
  • Click the top-level entity in the tree, and click "Next."
  • Change the project name if you so desire, and click "Finish."

Satisfying dependencies

  • After "installing" Maven by extracting it, you must add the bin directory to your PATH (System -> Advanced -> Environment Variables)
  • You must also set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to your JDK path (eg. C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_22)
  • Now you need to import the ESAPI jar into the Maven repository. Download or build the ESAPI jar.
  • Execute: mvn install:install-file -DgroupId=OWASP -DartifactId=ESAPI -Dversion=2.0 -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=ESAPI.jar, changing the filename if necessary.
  • In Eclipse, go to Window -> Preferences -> Maven -> Installations. Click "Add" and select the directory in which you extracted maven. This directory should have the bin directory inside.
  • Tick the checkbox next to the new entry in the list. Click OK.

Building the WAR

  • In Eclipse, right-click the Swingset project and go to Run As -> Run Configurations
  • Double click on "Maven Build" in the left-hand pane to create a new configuration. Change the name to something like "Swingset Build."
  • For the base directory, click "Browse workspace" and select the swingset project.
  • Set the goal to be "package"
  • Click "Run"
  • If the build was successful, the WAR should be in the target directory under the project folder

Getting the Tomcat Bundle

  • Download the tomcat bundle from SVN: svn checkout tomcat_bundle
  • Copy the WAR you made in the step above to tomcat_bundle\apache-tomcat-6.0.18\webapps\ROOT.war (changing its name)
  • Do any necessary setup outlined in the README for tomcat, like setting JAVA_HOME in the batch file
  • Run the batch file to start the server
