BlazeDS is one of several open-source projects in a Subversion repository hosted by Adobe. Subversion is an open-source revision control system used for many open-source projects. If you haven't used it before, please see the official documentation.
If you just wish to browse around the BlazeDS source tree, go straight to the public repository here.
Within the project are directories named
tags, as is standard for Subversion projects.
The trunk is generally work-in-progress on the version under current development. The trunk should build and pass basic tests but may be unstable and unsuitable for use.
Branches are created when projects need to stabilize code for a release. The BlazeDS 4 code may be found in branches/4.x and BlazeDS 3 code may be found in branches/3.x.
Tags record the code that shipped as a specific release, or other milestones in a project. The code which shipped as the 4.0 release has been tagged as tags/4.0.0.
Most users of the source code probably don't need to have day to day access to the source code as it changes. For these users we provide a zip file of the latest stable release.
If you feel that you need access to the source tree to get a local copy of the latest and greatest code, you will need a Subversion client. The BlazeDS team has had good experience with TortoiseSVN on Windows and SmartSVN on Macintosh, both of which are GUI clients. (This is not an official endorsement of these products by Adobe.) Of course, you can use whatever client you prefer, including Subversion's official command-line tool
NOTE: The Subversion repository should only be used if you want to be on the bleeding-edge of the development effort. The code contained in them may fail to work, or it may even eat your hard drive.
When you access the repository with a Subversion client, the BlazeDS project is at the URL https://sourceforge.net/adobe/blazeds/.
To get the source code, do a "checkout" of the trunk or some branch or tag into a local directory on your machine. For example, to get the code in the trunk, checkout from the URL http://opensource.adobe.com/svn/opensource/blazeds/trunk. Using the command-line client, you would execute
svn checkout http://opensource.adobe.com/svn/opensource/blazeds/trunk <local-directory>
To get the code that was used to build the BlazeDS 4 release, checkout from the URL http://opensource.adobe.com/svn/opensource/blazeds/tags/4.0.0:
svn checkout http://opensource.adobe.com/svn/opensource/blazeds/tags/4.0.0 <local-directory>
To get the code that was used to build the BlazeDS 3 release, checkout from the URL http://opensource.adobe.com/svn/opensource/blazeds/tags/3.0.0:
svn checkout http://opensource.adobe.com/svn/opensource/blazeds/tags/3.0.0 <local-directory>
Warning: You probably don't want to check out the entire
blazeds directory, as you'll get every branch and tag, each of which is comparable in size to the trunk.
