Release Contents

This release consists of a single source archive (jackrabbit-1.5.7-src.jar)
that contains all the Apache Jackrabbit components. Use the following
commands (or the equivalent in your system) to build the release with
Maven 2 and Java 1.4 or higher:

    jar xf jackrabbit-1.5.7-src.jar
    cd jackrabbit-1.5.7
    mvn install

Note that the OCM components require Java 5 or higher, and are not included
in the build when using Java 1.4.

The source archive is accompanied by SHA1 and MD5 checksums and a PGP
signature that you can use to verify the authenticity of your download.
The public key used for the PGP signature can be found at

The build will result in the following components (with artifactIds in
parenthesis) being built and installed in your local Maven repository.
