Generating Packages and Installers

Updated: August 19, 2019

Here are steps for generating packages and installers, making them available for download.

Nuxeo Packages

See Creating Nuxeo Packages.

Nuxeo Platform (CS, CAP, DM)

ZIP

The ZIP is produced by IT-nuxeo-5.4-build (or IT-release-on-demand-nuxeo-5.4-build) and pushed to the given UPLOAD_URL if IT-nuxeo-5.4-tests-dm-tomcat (or IT-release-on-demand-nuxeo-5.4-tests-dm-tomcat) succeeds.

This is part of the release process.

IzPack (.jar, .app, .jnlp, .exe)

Run IT-nuxeo-5.4-build-izpack with parameters:

  • NXVERSION
  • ZIP_DIR: set a path to use local archives, else they will be retrieved from Maven repositories.
  • CODEBASE_URL: for use by JNLP
  • UPLOAD_URL

This is generating the jar, app, jnlp and exe installers.

NSIS (.exe)

Run IT-nuxeo-5.4-build-windows with parameters:

  • LASTBUILD_URL: Jenkins job's URL for downloading artifact to package
  • UPLOAD_URL

Debian

Run IT-nuxeo-5.4-build-debian with parameters:

  • VERSION
  • ARCHIVE_URL_JBOSS
  • ARCHIVE_URL_TOMCAT

Debian packages are uploaded to the Nuxeo APT repository.

RPM

Currently not available.

VMs

Addons

Think about building Nuxeo Packages for released addons and publishing them on Nuxeo Connect.

Nuxeo CMF

ZIP

Unzip, chmod +x *.command bin/`.sh bin/*ctl bin/.command`, re-zip.

Upload to [email protected]:/var/www/www.nuxeo.org/static/staging/cmf-${version}/ and generate md5 checksums.

Download from http://community.nuxeo.com/static/staging/cmf-${version}/, test and validate.

If ok, move from cmf-${version}.tmp to cmf-${version}.

IzPack (.jar, .app, .jnlp, .exe)

Script is not enough generic for now. Here's a patch for using https://github.com/nuxeo/nuxeo-distribution-izpack with CMF: 

Then, steps for generating the jar, app, jnlp and exe are similar as for Nuxeo EP.

NSIS (.exe)
