Build Bonita Community edition from the source

Bonita is an opensource Digital Process Automation platform, you can therefore build Bonita Community edition from the source.

All source code of Bonita is available from the Bonitasoft GitHub organization. Each Bonita component has a dedicated repository (e.g. Engine repository).

Manual Bonita build

You can build Bonita from component to component, but you have to know the component interdependencies: some components rely on components that are built earlier in the sequence, so the build order must be respected. For instance, build bonita-engine prior to build bonita-web.

The 'Build Bonita' repository

To simplify the build process, you can use the solution provided in the Build Bonita GitHub project.
