What do you need?


You'll need to be a reasonably proficient Java programmer. Knowledge of Google App Engine is an advantage, but not required.


These instructions assume you've got the following:

  • Then Git source control system
  • The Java development kit version 7 or later (current is version 8)
  • Apache Maven 3

Clone the source code:

$ git clone

Then launch the development server through Maven (it may take several minutes to download the various dependencies the first time you do this):

$ cd LastCalc
$ mvn appengine:devserver

If you now visit http://localhost:8080/ in your browser you should see a local copy of LastCalc. If you have problems please let us know.
