To get started, you will need:

  1. Java - see Install Java JDK
  2. A computer with a connection to the internet

We also strongly recommend:


Maven and the Aspire Distribution Archetype

We understand that it requires a little more effort (it requires the Maven command-line tool, and there are a couple of extra steps), however it has added flexibility including:

  • The ability to build distributions for computers without an internet connection
  • The ability to build multiple distributions for multiple environments (e.g. development, staging, QA, and production environments)
  • The ability to bundle your applications

For complete instructions, see Quick Start with Distribution Archetype.

Upgrade to a Later Version

If you've chosen to upgrade to a later version, the instructions for changing your distribution to use it are here.
