 mvn install

The current 'final' product can be found in jgridstart-small/target/jgridstart-small-<version>.jar (together with a bcprov-<jdk>-<version>.jar). Please see the README for more information.

jGridstart's main application is in jgridstart/, and it can be run from there using the shellscript jgridstart.sh (or jgridstart.bat on Windows).
