Getting Started

Please take a look at the project roadmap To see currently open tasks, discussed ideas and submitted bugs


After cloning the code repository, Java and Apache Maven are required to be able to compile it. Ensure that Java and Maven version installed on your machine by running:

mvn -v

And the result will output the Maven-related information:

Apache Maven 3.6.3

Maven home: /usr/share/maven

Java version: 17.0.6, vendor: Oracle Corporation, runtime: /usr/lib/jvm/java-17-oracle

Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: UTF-8

OS name: "linux", version: "5.19.0-40-generic", arch: "amd64", family: "unix"

Choosing the correct Java version

This project is built using Java LTS version 17. But it has been tested also with the LTS version 1.8.

If you have multiple versions of Java installed, you can select the correct one by running:

sudo update-alternatives --config java

and then (if applicable):

sudo update-alternatives --config javac

Many programs, such as Java servers, use the JAVA_HOME environment variable to determine the Java installation location.

So, you need to uncomment the correct Java path, and add it to ~/.bashrc:

# ~/.bashrc contents:

# export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/jdk-11/

# export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.8.0_333/

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-17-oracle/

export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH

After updating the ~/.bashrc file, run the source command to activate the changes:

source ~/.bashrc


By looking at pom.xml you will see some plugins this project uses. Supposing that Maven runs correctly on your machine and you have configured this project as a Maven project, these plugins will be automativcally downloaded and installed upon compilation.

After compiling, in order for the standalone .jar file to be built, run these commands:

mvn clean

mvn package

mvn assembly:single

mvn dependency:copy-dependencies

In order to run the produced .jar file, run:

java -jar -Djdk.gtk.version=2 -Dexec.mainClass=org.scify.memori.ApplicationLauncher target/memori-1.0-SNAPSHOT-jar-with-dependencies.jar

These tasks can also be accomplished more easily just by running


which is a UNIX executable file located at the root of the project.

Note: if not executable, you need to make the file executable, by running:

chmod +x
