Hemera installation

Prepare a Workspace

You should begin preparing a workspace with enough space.
Let's call it [HEMERA_ROOT_PATH].

Get the source code

Command line

svn co https://hemerais.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/hemerais/trunk/hemera

Under Eclipse (or other IDE)

Add https://hemerais.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/hemerais as a new repository URL.
Checkout following projects, from trunk or wanted branch: hemera


Update Operating System

To setup Hemera (e.g. improving accessibility of Hemera binaries/scripts), launch as root superuser:


To help configuring the whole of Hemera, a global configuration file system has been created.

Copy [HEMERA_ROOT_PATH]/config/hemera.conf.sample to [HEMERA_ROOT_PATH]/config/hemera.conf and adapt it to your configuration.
For each tool, you can either update the corresponding configuration element (specifying an absolute path, or a path relative to [HEMERA_ROOT_PATH]) or ensure it is available from the PATH environment variable (specifying only the file name of the tool).


Hemera java pieces need:
- a version of Java Development Kit (jdk6 or newer)
- Apache Ant.

-> after installation, you should either update your environment variables JAVA_HOME and ANT_HOME,
   or update environment.java.home and environment.ant.home in your Hemera configuration file.

Check Third-Party tools availability

Each third-party tool binary path, and data file path are checked when using corresponding core module.
A specific error message will be given in case of failure.

Install third-party tools

See Install third-party tools.
