ESAPI is easy to build yourself using Git and Maven. Ensure that you are using UTF-8 for all source code.

 $ git clone    # This will clone the 'develop' branch.
 $ cd esapi-java-legacy
 $ mvn -Dmaven.test.skip=true package  # Build ESAPI

Maven will generate a "target" directory that contains the ESAPI jar file.

To generate project reports use:

 $ mvn site

To generate documentation use:

 $ mvn javadoc:jar
