The z2-Environment is an open source infrastructure to develop, configure, and run standard Java solutions without build infrastructure nor deployment procedures and so reduces development operations costs significantly.

During development and maintenance you do not need to have a local build environment installed that complements your source code.

The z2-Environment rebuilds Java sources as required and selectively from your development workspace leading to fast development roundtrips and consistent deployments, and ultimately to minimized integration pains.

This Wiki contains answers to all kinds of practical questions on using Z2.

Howtos provide practical information on various aspects that you may run into when looking deeper.


There are various samples available that highlight specific use-cases and may serve as a solution template, when you just cannot get it to work or do not know where to start.


The z2 base distribution is really just the most basic but still practically useful set of z2 modules. Addon repositories provide additional modules that add complete feature sets. Addons are versioned along with z2 base and may be included by simply adding component repositories. See also How_to_Create_a_Complete_System.
