For each prerequisite, the version with which JArgs has been tested is given in parentheses. Any version equal to or later than this should work.
To build JArgs and run its tests you need on of
- Apache Ant (1.8.2), by The Apache Software Foundation
- Apache Maven (3.0.4), by The Apache Software Foundation
Moreover JUnit (4.3.1), by Eric Gamma, is used to run the unit tests, but is not needed to run the library itself.
To compile, package, and test the code, run either
mvn clean package source:jar javadoc:jar jar:test-jar
Two jars are created, one called
target/jargs-$VERSION$.jar, which contains
the runtime library, and one called
contains the unit tests and the examples. The Javadoc APIs are created in
To use the library with your own code, simply ensure that
target/jargs-$VERSION$.jar is on the CLASSPATH.
