If you are a Maven user, there are a couple of different ways for getting the ICEfaces 3.0.x libraries for use in your project. You can use the libraries provided from the ICEfaces Maven Repository or you can compile and build the source code locally and install those libraries into your local Maven repository.
The Maven poms and jars for this distribution are located in the following ICEfaces Maven repository. Just add this repository entry to your own .pom files:
Then you can add the dependencies for the libraries you wish to use. For example to add the ACE components and the transitive dependency on ICEfaces:
In ICEfaces 3.0.x, there is no support for building the ICEfaces libraries themselves using Maven. ICEfaces source code can only be compiled and packaged into .jar files by Ant. If you have downloaded the Source distribution bundle of ICEfaces, you will need to:
To build the ICEfaces libraries, open a console or shell and navigate to the "icefaces" directory where you unzipped the ICEfaces distribution. Then, in the console, type the following and press Enter:
This builds all of the ICEfaces libraries and sample applications suitable for deployment to any JEE 6 Web Profile platform, such as Glassfish 3.
The [icefaces.install.dir]/icefaces/maven2 folder contains an Ant build script for doing the required Maven tasks. To use this script:
To install the ICEfaces .jar files into your local Maven repository, open a shell or console window and navigate to [icefaces.install.dir]/icefaces/maven2.
The locally built ICEfaces .jar files should now be installed in the local Maven repository of your machine and you can now add them as dependencies in your .pom files as outlined in the first section of this page.
