1. Get started
Want to use JDash in your Java project? Great. This section covers the installation and the configuration part.
By adding the dependency in your Maven POM
If your project is set up with Apache Maven, you can easily add the JDash library by adding
these lines in your
<dependencies> <!-- ... your other dependencies --> <dependency> <groupId>com.github.alex1304</groupId> <artifactId>jdash</artifactId> <version><!-- Latest version number --></version> </dependency> </dependencies>
By downloading the JARs
This is the most simple way to get the library. Go to the releases page, you will find a ZIP file containing the JAR file of JDash, as well as other JARs that are dependencies. You will need to add ALL JARs contained in the archive, including dependencies, in order to make it work in your project.
By compiling the sources
You can also build the JARs yourself by compiling the sources. To do that, first clone the project in the directory of your choice.
git clone https://github.com/Alex1304/jdash.git
Go to the newly created directory and compile the sources using Apache Maven.
cd jdash mvn package
This will create the JAR file in the
target/ directory, and the dependencies in
The library itself is ready to use. If you don't use Maven in your project, all you have to do is to move all JAR files (JDash + the dependencies) into your project's lib directory, and link them to your project in the build path, as you would do for any other external library.
