To ensure reproducible builds this Maven project inherits from the vegardit-maven-parent project which declares fixed versions and sensible default settings for all official Maven plug-ins.
The project also uses the maven-toolchains-plugin which decouples the JDK that is used to execute Maven and it's plug-ins from the target JDK that is used for compilation and/or unit testing. This ensures full binary compatibility of the compiled artifacts with the runtime library of the required target JDK.
To build the project follow these steps:
Download and install a Java 17 SDK, e.g. from:
Download and install the latest Maven distribution.
In your user home directory create the file
.m2/toolchains.xmlwith the following content:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF8"?> <toolchains> <toolchain> <type>jdk</type> <provides> <version>17</version> <vendor>default</vendor> </provides> <configuration> <jdkHome>[PATH_TO_YOUR_JDK_17]</jdkHome> </configuration> </toolchain> </toolchains>
