Before proceeding with building DBeaver, ensure that your system meets the following prerequisites:

  • JDK 17 or higher: DBeaver currently uses OpenJDK 17 as the default Java Development Kit. Make sure you have JDK 17 or a newer version installed.
  • Apache Maven 2.9.5 or higher: This is required for managing the project's build. You can download it from the Apache Maven website.
  • Git: Needed for cloning the DBeaver repository. If you do not have Git installed, visit the official Git website for download and installation instructions.
  • Internet Access: Required for downloading dependencies and other necessary components during the build process.

Build steps

  1. Clone the DBeaver repository:
    git clone https://github.com/dbeaver/dbeaver.git dbeaver
    cd dbeaver
  2. To build the project, use the appropriate script for your operating system:

    On Windows, run: `sh build.cmd On Linux or macOS, run: sh ./build.sh `

After the build process completes, the binaries can be found in the product/community/target/products directory.
