Developer Guide

How to set up your environment for developing on Jikkou.


Building Jikkou

We use Maven Wrapper to build our project. The simplest way to get started is:

For building distribution files.

$ ./mvnw clean package -Pdist -DskipTests

Alternatively, we also use Make to package and build the Docker image for Jikkou:

$ make

Running tests

For running all tests and checks:

$ ./mvnw clean verify

Code Format

This project uses the Maven plugin Spotless to format all Java classes and to apply some code quality checks.

Bugs & Security

This project uses the Maven plugin SpotBugs and FindSecBugs to run some static analysis to look for bugs in Java code.

Reported bugs can be analysed using SpotBugs GUI:

$ ./mvnw spotbugs:gui
