The current recommended version of GeoMesa is
GeoMesa requires Java JRE or JDK 8 to run.
2.1. Release Distributions¶
GeoMesa release distributions contain pre-built artifacts for using GeoMesa. They can be downloaded from GitHub.
Older versions can be downloaded from the LocationTech Maven repository.
2.2. Maven Integration¶
GeoMesa artifacts are hosted on Maven Central. However, there are several required third-party libraries that are only available in other repositories. To include GeoMesa in your project, add the following repositories to your pom:
<repositories> <!-- geotools --> <repository> <id>osgeo</id> <url>https://repo.osgeo.org/repository/release</url> </repository> <!-- confluent --> <repository> <id>confluent</id> <url>https://packages.confluent.io/maven/</url> </repository> </repositories>
and then include the desired
<dependency> <groupId>org.locationtech.geomesa</groupId> <artifactId>geomesa-utils_2.12</artifactId> <version>3.0.0</version> </dependency>
Nightly snapshots are available from Eclipse:
<repository> <id>geomesa-snapshots</id> <url>https://repo.eclipse.org/content/repositories/geomesa-snapshots</url> <releases> <enabled>false</enabled> </releases> <snapshots> <enabled>true</enabled> </snapshots> </repository>
2.3. Source Code¶
To build and install the source distribution requires:
To build, change to the source directory and use Maven:
mvn clean install
The full build takes quite a while. To speed it up, you may skip tests and use multiple threads. GeoMesa also
provides the script
build/mvn, which is a wrapper around Maven that downloads and runs
Zinc, a fast incremental compiler:
build/mvn clean install -T8 -DskipTests
