Is there a version of JForum3 that can compile?

JForum3 looks like an attractive project, however, the version in git hub is missing a lot of lib files, is there a way to find a branch that can actually compile?

Thanks!

I'm not sure if there's one. I just had a look at that github repo and forked it to my repo. Tried building it and it failed due to a missing "lib" folder. I have sent a pull request containing that fix. However, the build still fails at a later point due to various missing library jars (like Hibernate, JPA, Spring). I don't really know if Rafael has fixes locally which he hasn't probably pushed to the repo.

Thanks Jaikiran for the quick reply.

It looks like JForum3 combines some old lib(like Lucene, commons-lang) and some new (like vraptor 3.4), some deprecated features were used, so the exact version of jar files have to be there to make it compile.
I also see things like groovy were there, which sounds not mentioned in the design discussion thread. Do you know whether I can find an updated document for the current design?

JForum3 used a lot of new interesting stuff and code is nice and clean. If there is a full compilable version available, it would save a lot of time(like finding and downloading the exact jars) for anybody who want to contribute to the project.

Thanks again!
