Project Information

The goal of this project is to provide a high quality product that can be deployed by educational and academic institutions, private and public companies and anyone who needs to have a mindmapping application. WiseMapping is based on the same code source supporting WiseMapping.com. More info: www.wisemapping.org

Compiling and Running


The following products must be installed:

* Java Development Kit 7 or higher ([http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html])
* Maven 3.x or higher ([http://maven.apache.org/])


WiseMapping uses Maven as packaging and project management. It's composed of 5 maven sub-modules:

* core-js: Utilities JavaScript classes
* web2d: JavaScript 2D SVG abstraction library used by the mind map editor
* mindplot: JavaScript mindmap designer core
* wise-editor: Mindmap Editor standalone distribution
* wise-webapp: J2EE web application

The full compilation of the project can be performed executing within <project-dir>:

mvn package

Once this command is execute, the file <project-dir>/wise-webapp/target/wisemapping*.war will be generated.


The previously generated war can be deployed locally executing within the directory <project-dir>/wise-webapp the following command:

cd wise-webapp;mvn jetty:run-war

This will start the application on the URL: [http://localhost:8080/wise-webapp/]. Additionally, a file based database is automatically populated with a test user.

User: test@wisemapping.org Password: test

Running the JS only version

Start by creating the .zip file:

mvn assembly:assembly -Dmaven.test.skip=true

To test the javascript frontend you then do:

ruby -rwebrick -e 'WEBrick::HTTPServer.new(:Port=>8000,:DocumentRoot=>".").start'

Now open a browser using the URL http://localhost:8000/wise-editor/src/main/webapp/
