Build tinylog

tinylog requires Maven 3.5 and JDK 9 for building. Newer JDKs cannot compile legacy code for older Java versions, and older JDKs cannot compile new features for the latest Java versions. OpenJDK 9 is still available on and Oracle JDK 9 on

Build command:

mvn clean install

A new folder "target" with Javadoc documentation and all JARs will be created in the root directory. The generated JARs contain Java 6 byte code and are compatible with any JRE 7 and higher as well as with Android API level 1 and higher.
