Packaging and deploying Mauve releases
The Mauve source tree includes scripts to support packaging Mauve releases on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. In general, a computer running each OS is required to package the corresponding release. It is not possible, for example, to cross-package a Mac OS X release from within Linux.
Packaging Linux releases
Packaging Mac OS X releases
Packaging Windows releases
Windows release packaging requires the freely available Nullsoft Scriptable Installation System. Please download and install this software prior to packaging Mauve installers for Windows.
Additional ant targets exist in the build.xml file called deployLinux, deployWin32, and deployMacOSX. These targets assume that your workstation is directly connected to the Genome Evolution Lab network and that ssh private keys have been installed to permit password-free authentication. Unless you are me or you hack our network, you will not be able to automatically deploy releases.
Deploying ASAP-integrated Mauve releases
Mauve includes an applet that allows the Mauve Java Web Start application to communicate directly with the ASAP annotation database. To build an ASAP-integrated Mauve release, it will be necessary to either create or obtain Java code signing certificates. Once a certificate has been obtained, the key.keystore variable in build.xml should be modified to reflect the location of the keystore file. The ASAP deployment code in build.xml assumes that the deployment takes place from a machine running Windows, deployed to a web server running Linux. The variables asap.dir and asap.codebase in build.xml must be configured appropriately. asap.dir is the location of the web server directory where the production copy of the Mauve applet and application reside. It must be accessible as a UNC path within windows. This directory can be a symlink on the web server from the user’s home directory to the production directory. asap.codebase is the base URL where the newly installed Mauve application and applet will reside. Once these variables have been configured correctly and the keystore is in place, the deployASAP target of build.xml can be executed. Note that the password for the keystore must be provided when the target is executed. This can be done either on the java -jar ant.jar command line, or from within eclipse by providing a new VM Argument in the JRE tab of the “Run as…->Ant build…” dialog box. The vm argument to add is -Dkey.password=
