# How to build ODL to generate a jar file ?

Hi,

I would like to build the ODL source to get a jar and use it in a Java/Maven project (in Eclipse). How can i do this ? I try this :

• Download ODL from link text, there is a pom.xml => I follow the "README.OPENDAYLIGHT" with a mvn clean install but after that there is no "opendaylight/distribution/opendaylight/target" directory and i didn't found a "global" .jar to use it in an other project in Eclipse...
