I am new to Pentaho. I installed Pentaho software and could view sample reports from User Console.
Now I want to build Pentaho software from the open sources available through Community Edition.

As such I downloaded the sources and imported in Eclipse creating projects viz,
pentaho-platform-api, pentaho-platform-assembly, pentaho-platform-core, pentaho-platform-extensions,
pentaho-platform-repository, pentaho-platform-scheduler, pentaho-user-console.

I could build successfully the pentaho-platform-api project with the default target in ant
generating 'pentaho-platform-api-TRUNK-SNAPSHOT.jar'.

But when trying to build with 'continuos' target in ant which builds the jar and publishes the generated jar to remote repository, it
is giving the following error.

[echo] Publishing D:\eclipse_workspace-new-Pentaho\pentaho-platform-api/dist/ivy.xml to ${ivy.repository.publish}...

Can anyone help me out from this.

Also I chose randomly pentaho-platform-api project to build first. I want to know the order of the projects to be followed for building.

Also, I would like to know and it would be very helpful to me if there is a tutorial explaining how to build pentaho software from open sources so that I can know what steps are needed and what configuration should be done to build pentaho software.
Could you please suggest?

Thanks and regards,
Raman Kumar.
