The source code is available from the NCSA opensource SVN repository:
svn co https://opensource.ncsa.illinois.edu/svn/dfdl/trunk/daffodil
Daffodil requires Java 1.6 or higher. All scripts provided for running and testing are written in bash and tested in GNU Linux. Those scripts are not required though, so Daffodil should be able to run in other platforms as long as Java is installed
Apache Ant (1.7 or higher) is required for building using the provided script.
Daffodil is written in Scala 2.8.
It is not required to install Scala to run or compile Daffodil (the required Scala libraries are included).
An Ant script is provided in $DAFFODIL/build.xml. To build Daffodil simply issue:
$ ant -f $DAFFODIL/build.xml all
or, if inside the installation directory:
$ ant all
There are IDE's and eclipse plug-ins that can be used to build daffodil. See:
