Build and install the maven artifacts

 

This is an important step before importing the project in your IDE, because it populates your local maven repository with all the dependencies needed to build the project. The subsequent IDE integration then relies on the binaries in your local maven repo.

 

1.) Build the core modules artifacts

 

cd trunk/

mvn clean install

 

1.1) Build the sample store application

 

cd samples/TheStore

mvn clean install

 

Setup Intellij

 

1.) Create new Project from external model

Basically your just need to point Intellij to the top level pom.xml that resides within errai/trunk.
