The developer environment can be set in any Operating System (Linux, Windows, etc.) since it is a multi-platform system, but Linux is recommended, because is what it is being used.
|We've released Portable OpenKM development environment, we encourage windows users use it. At the present still we do not have one for linux users.|

You need to install Maven, eclipse IDE and some plugins. For OpenKM 4.0 and 5.0 you have these requirements:
- Maven at http://maven.apache.org/
- Eclipse Juno (Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers) at http://eclipse.org/juno/
- Subversion eclipse plugin at http://subclipse.tigris.org
- Maven to eclipse plugin at http://m2eclipse.sonatype.org
- Java JDK 1.6 at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html
|Starting from Eclipse Galileo you have a Marketplace accessible from Help > Eclipse Marketplace... Here you can search for "maven" to install the "Maven Integration for Eclipse" and "Maven Integration for Eclipse (Extras)" solutions. Also you can search for "subversion" to find the "Subclipse" plugin. See Eclipse Indigo - Maven and Svn.|
|The easier way to get an Eclipse installation with the required plugins is using JBoss Developer Studio.|
Once all them are installed, you can download OpenKM and build it.
