Development Snapshot

This guide provides instruction for installing midPoint development snapshot. It is the very bleeding edge of midPoint development. We try really hard to have continuous iterative and incremental development and we pay great care not to break anything and have all the tests passing. However, unexpected things happen. Parts of the development snapshot may behave in a strange fashion, there may be unfinished things and things may be broken here. You are going into uncharted territory. There be dragons. You have been warned.


MidPoint is a Java application therefore it requires Java platform to run on. MidPoint requires at least Java 8. You can use OpenJDK wich might be already installed on your system of you can download JDK from Oracle.

JAVA_HOME environment variable should point to the Java installation path.

Java 8 only

MidPoint 3.7 is supported only on Java 8 platforms. MidPoint supported both Java 7 and Java 8 for several years. The support for Java 7 was deprecated in midPoint 3.4.1 and it was removed in midPoint 3.5.
