When asking for a feature (or a bug) on openejb/tomee mailing list it regurlarly ends with something like “fixed on trunk”. Then the user generally ask how to get the trunk binaries. So here a small post on how to get it if you don’t know.
For the impatient
TomEE is deployed on apache nexus (but note it is not deployed each time a build is done but by a cron-like or manual task).
So to get TomEE SNAPSHOT go to https://repository.apache.org/content/repositories/snapshots/org/apache/openejb/apache-tomee/, select your version and your package (take care of last digit which should be the higer one).
First checkout the trunk at the url (svn): http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/openejb/trunk/openejb/
Secondly go to the checkouted folder and build in quick mode TomEE: mvn clean install -Dmaven.test.skip=true -pl tomee/apache-tomee -am
Finally go to tomee/apache-tomee/target and get your archive.
