If you have downloaded the 'dspace-src-release' (or checked out the latest DSpace Code via Subversion GitHub), there are two main build options that are available to you:

  1. Full Build: Running mvn package from the root [dspace-source]directory
    • This option will rebuild all DSpace modules from their Java Source code, then apply any Maven WAR Overlays. In other words, all subdirectories of [dspace-source] are recompiled/rebuilt.
  2. Quick Build: Running mvn package from the [dspace-source]/dspace/directory
    • This option performs a "quick build". It does not recompile/rebuild all DSpace modules. All it does is rebuild and re-apply any Maven WAR Overlays to the previously compiled source code. In other words, the ONLY code that will be recompiled/rebuilt is code that exists in [dspace-source]/dspace/modules/* (the Maven WAR Overlay directories)
