building the program

this project is built using maven and needs Java 8. The library jar is created by running mvn package. This creates as well an application directory structure in target/trakxmap. You can copy this whole directory to a machine which has Java8 installed and start the program by using the scripts found in the bin directory. Or start it on the machine where you did the build using

(cd target/trakxmap && ./bin/trakxmap)

or all in one:

mvn package && (cd target/trakxmap && ./bin/trakxmap)
