Up to release 3.1.1, Torque used CVS as its source code repository. Most of the older releases still point to the CVS repository at cvs.apache.org. During the 3.2 development cycle, the Torque team (with a few well-meant nudges from the Apache Software Foundation infrastructure team) decided to move the Torque source code from CVS to Subversion.
If you have never worked with Subversion before, please take a look at the free subversion book and also at Source code repositories at the Apache Software Foundation to get more information.
Unlike some other repositories you might know, Torque makes some use of the svn:externals feature of Subversion to organize its tree. This might lead to some "gotchas", so be warned.
Here is what the Torque directory structure looks like in SVN:
db/torque/ common <--- contains files common to all components. Referenced by svn:externals runtime <--- contains the runtime component generator <--- contains the generator component templates <--- contains the generator templates component maven-plugin <--- contains the maven plugin component maven2-plugin <--- contains the maven 2 plugin component test <--- contains the test component trunks <--- contains references to the trunks of all component (via svn:externals) site <--- contains the "frame" of the sources of the homepage (everything not related to a specific component) branches <--- old branches (pre-3.2) tags <--- old tags (pre-3.2)
Torque contains the following components:
|Component||Trunk repository location|
|Maven 1 Plugin||http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/db/torque/maven-plugin/trunk/|
|Maven 2 Plugin||http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/db/torque/maven2-plugin/trunk/|
These modules make up the main torque distribution. They
are released in regular intervals and are available as binary
and source distributions from the
Torque download page. Each of these modules is developed
on its own Subversion trunk; Tags and Branches are located in
The common module is a special module because it contains files
that are needed in all main modules of the Torque source
tree. Every module pulls it into its source tree through an
external reference and references the files in the common module
Please be aware that every change inside this module influences the build process of all the Torque modules!.
The test project is used by Torque developers to test the functionality of Torque. See the test guide for an explanation of how to run the tests.
All CVS tags and branches that existed before the conversion to Subversion have been preserved. These are only for historic reasons and there will be no more development here. Branches and Tags after the Subversion conversion will be located in the module specific branches/ and tags/ directories.
The Torque subversion repository contains another module for
development called trunks. While
this module seems quite empty, it is not.
If you want to work on the Torque code base, your best guess will be to check out this module using
svn checkout http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/db/torque/trunks torque
The trunks module also contains a Multi-Project
build environment to build all the major parts of Torque in one
If you checked out the trunks module from subversion, you can run one of the following goals inside the resulting directory:
