Building JiBX/WS

To build JiBX/WS, either from the distribution or from a SVN image, use the Ant build.xml file in the build directory. The default Ant target just rebuilds the lib/jibx-ws.jar file from the source code. The "distrib" target builds the actual distribution zip file, while the "develop" target builds the lib/jibx-ws.jar file along with internal JavaDocs.

If building from a SVN image, you will need to populate the dep-lib and spring-lib directories with the required dependencies. The dependencies are managed using Apache Ivy and are specified in the ivy.xml file. The "retrieve" target will download the Ivy jar file, if not already downloaded, after which it will download the dependent jars to the appropriate directories.
