First off, THAT WAS COOL.

i didn't realize this was the tool to get the latest and greatest out of GitHub!

This post is strictly a Celebratory one in saying "Thanks for this tool!"

Also, this section needed something... xD

Again, thanks guys!

Hi,

Is the source of UMSBuilder hosted somewhere? I downloaded it, had a quick read, and translated the commands to fit my linux.

If the source is hosted somewhere I would be happy to share my "buildOnLinuxForLinux.sh" with a pull request.

UMSBuilder isn't hosted anywhere afaik, but feel free to attach the script in its own thread here :).

If you upload it somewhere I can add it to the next version of UMSBuilder, which I've been meaning to release soon anyway :)

I have pasted it here: http://pastebin.com/a645PLLv

I did some quick tests myself and it does the job perfectly.

My eventual goal is to see whether I can package UMS into a standard debian package for Ubuntu and other derivatives. This way its easier to install and perhaps updates can be pushed automatically to users via the standard tools (Software updater, apt, dpkg, ...) . If you have any advice regarding that I'd be happy to hear :)

Great :) (though I should confess personally I've always preferred a standalone install). You may want to look at the deb package here.

PS '\' -> '/' in the #Setup env block.

I'm assuming that UMSBuilder uses Java 7 currently. Correct me if I'm wrong. So am I missing the Java 8 optimizations found in the official releases if I build UMS with UMSB?

Yes you're right, but it makes very little difference. Basically the only meaningful differences between the two versions is from a development perspective; Java 8 lets us write more concise code.
