Release Management

Step by Step release menagement instructions are documented at Airavata CWiki Release Instructions.

Profiling and Performance

Airavata developers use JProfiler for code profiling and testing, and acknowledges free developer licenses provided by ej-technologies.

Code Analysis

Airavata uses Sonar code analysis tools. Sonar is an open source quality management platform, dedicated to continuously analyze and measure technical quality, from the project portfolio to the class method.

Browse Airavata Sonar Dashboard.

Continous Integration

Airavata uses Jenkins Continous Integration for automatic builds. The builds are triggered automatically on code commits and periodically.

Browse Airavata Jenkins Dashboard.

Code Review

Airavata uses Review Board for pre and post commit reviews. Browse Airavata Reviews. To submit or view reviews, you will need to create an account on Apache Reviews. Detailed documentation on using the review tools is at Review Board Documentation.

Source Code

The Apache Airavata source repositories are maintained using GIT version control. The repositories are mirrored in GitHub and are writable. For practicle purposes contributors and committers can use these repositories as yet another github repo. All user level github documentations applies. Some admin funcations on github may not work and Apache INFRA needs to be contacted for help with these tasks.

Building the Code

The following instructions will build and deploy Apache Airavata for testing and development. For a full, production environment gateway deployment, see


  1. Sources compilation require Java SE 8 or higher.
  2. The project is built with Apache Maven 3+ [Download][1] and [install][2] (Maven 2.x build will start but fail with errors)
  3. Set or export JAVA_HOME to point to JDK. For example in Ubuntu: export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk
  4. Get Airavata source [checked out](source.html) from Airavata trunk.

Build the distribution

  1. cd airavata-trunk
  2. mvn clean install
  3. To build without running tests, use mvn clean install -Dmaven.test.skip=true.
  4. The compressed binary distribution is created at PROJECT_DIR/modules/distribution/target

Developers Guide

Some coding practices:

  1. License Header: Always add the current ASF license header as described in ASF Source Header.
  2. Trailing Whitespaces: Remove all trailing whitespaces. Eclipse users can use Source->Cleanup option to accomplish this.
  3. Indentation: Use 4 space indents and never use tabs!
  4. Line wrapping: Use 120-column line width for Java code and Javadoc.
  5. Author Tags: Do not use Author Tags. The code is developed and owned by the community.
