the ODK Aggregate sources according to this guide

Your assistance will be highly appreciated.
First let me start with some background, Aggregate has two versions
the 0.9.x series (which was a preview release to be used for
prototyping) and the 1.x series which will be the first full release
of Aggregate. Currently Aggregate 1.0 is in alpha stage and is being
tested. Alpha releases are available for download from the downloads
page on the open data kit google code website. Only Aggregate 1.x will
support MySQL so if you getting the code and want to use MySQL please
make sure to use the v1_0 branch (not the default branch). Getting
Aggregate to work can be complex so we provide installers for people
to try out from the downloads page.
I recommend looking at the open data kit google code wiki for more information:
- The general Aggregate wiki is
- Working with the Aggregate code base
For example under the Advance set of bullets it says:
NOTE: For Aggregate 1.x it is required that you move the corresponding
jar for the desired platform from the conf/jar folder to the war/lib
directory. The aggregate configuration jars have the form
odk-xxxx-settings.jar, where xxxx is equal to the desired platform.
For example if you want Aggregate to run on Google App Engine you will
need to move the odk-gae-settings.jar to the war/lib directory. (The
settings jar needs to be on the build path)
