The Spring Shell project provides an extensible interactive shell enviornment with a simple Spring based plugin model.

This is essentially a place holder README file until this project gets its sealegs.


Spring Shell currently uses Maven as its build system. The build been done using version 3.0.3 (r1075438; 2011-02-28 12:31:09-0500) and the plan is to switch to gradle.

To build the shell that contains a hint, exit and 'hw' (hello world) command, run

 mvn package


After buldingn, run the shell

cd target
java -jar spring-shell-1.0.0.CI-SNAPSHOT.jar
