Building KitCAT

Following are the steps to build KitCAT from source:

  1. Check out latest versions of ECharts, EChartsJainSip and EChartsSiptest
    svn co https://echarts.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/echarts/trunk/EChartsCPL EChartsCPL
    svn co https://echarts.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/echarts/trunk/EChartsJainSip EChartsJainSip
    svn co https://echarts.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/echarts/trunk/EChartsSipTest EChartsSipTest
  2. Build EChartsCPL
    cd EChartsCPL; ant all
  3. Build EChartsJainSip
    cd EChartsJainSip
    Copy jain-sip-sdp-xxx.jar and log4j-xxx.jar under lib/ (if you have a current KitCAT distribution you can get these files from under the lib/ directory in the distribution)
    ant jar
  4. Build EChartsSipTest
    cd EChartsSipTest
    Copy jain-sip-sdp-xxx.jar, log4j-xxx.jar, junit-xxx.jar, hamcrest-xxx.jar under lib/ (if you have a current KitCAT distribution you can get these files from under the lib/ directory in the distribution)
    ant dist
  5. KitCAT_xxx-beta.zip is the distribution file that is generated under the EChartsSipTest directory

Problems have been observed while running 'ant dist' from a Windows command line environment. I have been able to get around this by doing the following steps:

  1. Make sure the path to javadoc.exe is in your PATH environment variable
  2. During the build, a window pops up intermittently with the following message - "Error while setting up environment for the application. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application". Ignoring this error and closing the pop-up window does not seem to have any impact on the build.
