I want to set up development environment with ambari source code so i can try to debug and also contribute.
How can i go about doing the setup?
Some more suggestions
1) For JS code use :WebStorm ( you will get EAP version from official website with 30 days trial)
2) Remember to use Coding guidelines as mentioned here
3) when you are running the project always skip rat checks or it might fail in most of cases and takes lot of time:
mvn clean install package -Dmaven.test.skip=true -Drat.skip -DskipTests
