java -jar to install AspectJ onto Windows/Mac/Linux. This installer is produced by the installer sub module.
In the root of a cloned AspectJ simply run:
./mvnw clean install
This will build all the modules, run all the tests and install the key artifacts in your local repository.

RunTheseBeforeYouCommitTests class that can be run with the JUnit launcher. This will execute all the tests in each module plus the compiler tests in the
