Setting up Your Development Environment

I am trying to setup the dev environment and following the instructions here

The instructions appear to be out of date and i am running into dependency issues when building the project.

Does anyone have a more up to date guide?

    Can any of the OpenClincia devs share their setup?

    Hi skwaler,

    We are also trying to set up the Devs and are running in the same issues: outdated instruction... outdated plugin... here our IT is fighting against Eclipse.

    Can you share where are you blocked? We might fight on the same front.

    Enable the checkbox "Skip Tests" for your maven build
    Run -> Run Configurations ... -> Maven build -> select you maven build

    Thank you for your quick answer. Switching off the tests and recieving a .war file which couldn't be deployed on tomcat - Firefox gives me a Whitescreen
    The Output of that trial I sent one minute before my last comment. Now I have to check all steps especially theese after the optional JRebel Configuration in the manual page. Can you see in the warnings what happens exactly?

    Sorry no.

    But usually I try to find the problem by checking the tomcat and openclinica log files. If you populate them here I'll have a look at them.

    If the build succeeds the development environment is configured probably.

    The solution for me had been to use a special branch in the git clone statement, but where are the Openclinica log-files, when they are not in /var/log/tomcat?

    and why the following @RequestMapping never triggers in OpenClinica?
    (wr-24 is never printed)

    public class HelloController {

    public HelloController() {

    @RequestMapping(value = "/example", method = RequestMethod.GET)
    public ModelAndView examplePage() {

    ModelAndView model = new ModelAndView();
    model.addObject("title", "Spring Security Custom Example Form");
    model.addObject("message", "This is Example page!");

    return model;


    I put in:
    /applicationContext-security.xml (22)
    < security:intercept-url pattern="/tan" filters="none"/ >
