12- Build Red5 Distribution

  1. Open eclipse, then right click in the project explorer, select Import, then click on Import. Under General, click on Existing Projects Into Workspace, then click Next ». Where it says Select root directory, click the Browse button and browse to the folder where you checked out the Red5 source (C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Eclipse\red5_server). Then click OK, then click Finish.
  2. Double click on the build.xml file, then in the outline panel on the right, find where it says dist (default), right click on it and select Run As, then select Ant Build. If it says BUILD SUCCESSFUL, then you know it worked.

    NOTE: If instead of getting BUILD SUCCESSFUL, you get an error that says "cannot find the javac compiler", then that means you haven't added the JDK bin to your path. Click here to watch the video on how to add the JDK bin to your path. If you make changes to your path, while you have eclipse open, then restart eclipse so it will see the changes to your path.
