OK, so first you need to change the Wookie version you build Rave with; to do this, in rave-project/pom.xml




Next, you need to publish your custom Wookie build locally. You can do this from the root
of your Wookie source folder using:

ant publish-local

This will create a 0.13.0-incubating-SNAPSHOT war in your local Maven repository (e.g. in

Note however I've seen a bug in Ivy/Ant where this is cached rather than updated when you
make changes, so you may need to delete it  then re-publish whenever you make changes (which
is a pain)

If you just want to try out some JavaScript changes interactively, you can run Rave, then
go into rave-portal/target/tomcat6x/webapps/wookie/features and edit OpenAjaxClient.js. You
can then see the effects just by reloading to clear the browser cached version. When you're
happy you've got a good working solution, you can copy it into your source folder then follow
the steps above to try it as part of a new build. 

Hope this helps,
