Compile from source
Shampoo is a Java 6 SE-compliant, Ant-based, NetBeans web application project. Building from other IDEs and conversions to Maven-based projects are not covered here.

Re-link all the JAR files from the lib folder when you first import the project within Netbeans. The JDBC driver is missing if you use another database system than Apache Derby. The GWT SDK is not included either, only its runtime, but is needed.
If you use NetBeans, GWT4NB provides good automation procedures for maintaining Ant scripts with GWT bindings. You're strongly advised to install this module within your IDE if you plan to edit the Client part of the project. The NetBeans project definition file is otherwise standard and the compiled project is self-contained into a single WAR file to upload to a Java servlet container. Make sure your Servlet context path is correctly set if you want to run or debug the application: Project Properties → Run → Context Path
If you don't use NetBeans, you will have to manually add a few dependencies to Ant. The script uses a custom NetBeans task, org-netbeans-modules-java-j2seproject-copylibstask.jar. It also requires the reference Servlet 2.5+ API, servlet-api-2.5.jar if no servlet container is already readily available on your workstation. You must finally define the path to your GWT 2 libraries as well. Use the following variables on the command line to explicitly resolve those external dependencies:
ant -file build.xml \ -Dj2ee.platform.classpath=/blahblah/servlet-api-2.5.jar \ -Dlibs.CopyLibs.classpath=/blahblah/org-netbeans-modules-java-j2seproject-copylibstask.jar \ -Dauxiliary.org-netbeans-modules-gwt4nb.GWTDir=/blahblah/gwt-2.6.0/ \ dist
