Newbie question: after building with mvn, where is the tar created?

(Andrea) #1

Hi all, I've recently built elastic from scratch with maven. However once the build was completed, I didn't find the tar file, as expected, in target/releases but in core/target/releases. The plugins where build in the plugins directory.
Is that normal?

I was wondering because there is indeed a target/release directory, but as mentioned, the files are created inside core/target/releases... is that normal? Thanks!

Sounds like you are using the master branch. Some folks have been doing
some reorganizing there. I suspect the instructions are more right for the
1.6 branch.

For the master branch, core/target/releases is indeed the right place to find the tar file.

Was there some documentation you were looking at that pointed you to target/releases? If so, can you point me to it so I can get it updated?

Yes I did the Master.

The file README.textile, in section "Building from Source", tells to find the files inside that directory.

I initially followed this guide by the way.

Thank you very much for your help!

Thanks for pointing that out, I'll make sure it gets fixed.

By the way, the documentation on the link looks quite out of date. I would look at first for documentation as these are the docs build directly from the github project repositories.
