I was recently given instructions and a Maven account for building a local Jive development instance.
All of the instructions are for Windows, including how to install Maven, Tomcat, Eclipse, etc., in the Windows environment. However, since all of the tools are open source, is there any reason why I could not use the same Maven account and instructions to build my development instance under Linux?
Or are there separate Maven repositories for both Windows and Linux? Not sure if what is in the repositories is 100% pure Java, or if bits of it are platform specific.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts / advice / suggestions!
