Instructions on configuring IDEs for development and using Maven to build the project is also included here.
The Rampart development team uses Subversion (SVN) for source control. Subversion is a compelling replacement for CVS, developed under the auspices of the Tigris community and licensed under an Apache compatible license.

If you are looking for guidance on setting up and installing Subversion, please read the ASF Source Code Repositories page.

Rampart's build is based on Maven 2. Maven is a build system that allows for the reuse of common build projects across multiple projects. For information about obtaining, installing, and configuring Maven 2, please see the Maven project page. To use Maven to build the Axis2 project, Please install Maven2 and follow instructions here - Quick Guide to Maven for Axis 2.0.
The Rampart development team uses a variety of development tools from vi to emacs to eclipse to Intellij/IDEA. The following section is not an endorsement of a specific set of tools, it is simply meant as a pointer to ease the process of getting started with Rampart development.
