Building Kepler Installers

How to build Kepler installers from the build system

These notes are about building installers using the Kepler-2.x build system.  See Building Kepler 1.0 for instructions on building installers for Kepler 1.0.

  1. Download and build the development version of Kepler.  See the Build System Instructions. The top-level directory ("src") and the kepler directory ("kepler") may have any name.
    mkdir src
    cd src
    mkdir kepler
    cd kepler
    svn co
    cd build-area
    ant change-to -Dsuite=kepler
    ant clean-cache
    ant eclipse
  2. Download Launch4J.
  3. Install launch4j so that it is in a directory adjacent to the kepler directory.  "ls src" should yield:
    kepler      launch4j
  4. In the kepler/build-area directory, run
    ant installer


If you get
build-area/build.xml:350: The following error occurred while executing this line:
build-area/build.xml:416: net.sf.launch4j.BuilderException: Icon doesn't exist.*
Then "look in build-area/installer/launch-kepler.xml or launch-installer.xml. Check that the path to the icon specified exists."
