Using the Source Code
This page provides information on how to access Alfresco's source code.
Most development tasks do not require access to the actual source repository. Guidance on how to build solutions with Alfresco is in the official documentation:
Accessing the source code is useful for tracking changes between releases, and for contributing fixes and enhancements. More information is on these pages:
There are many other ways to contribute to the Alfresco Community Edition project on the How to Contribute page.
Source Code Location
Alfresco maintains multiple source code repositories for different parts of the project. There are several places where Alfresco Engineering manages open source projects. And a few projects for alfresco enterprise.
You may not need to check out code because apache maven and the sdk will obtain code for you, however, if you want to check out the code outside of maven then you can.
April 2015 Please note: Following the move to a maven in 5.0 the alfresco source codebase is being broken up into smaller projects. Checking out and building HEAD is a different process to older releases of alfresco. This page is evolving rapidly at the moment. Updated information on building and running Alfresco
