Justify QuickStart


This QuickStart explores Justify  open source modules using JUnit 5 demonstration tests within Eclipse.

If  Java 8 and Eclipse are previously installed QuickStart
takes about  fifteen (15) minutes beginning with Step 4 .

Step 1 – JDK and IDE (Eclipse) Installation

a. Download and install the current Java 8 SE Development Kit or higher.

b. Download the current version of Eclipse – “Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers”. Extract the download to an installation directory similar to the following:

PC: C:\eclipse\oxygen
Mac: /Applications/eclipse/oxygen

Step 2 – Launch Eclipse

Launch Eclipse… we use a short cut which provides considerable memory for tools like SonarLint:

C:\eclipse\oxygen\eclipse\eclipse.exe -vm "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_162\bin" --vmargs -Xms512m -Xmx3000m

Open a (suggested) work space as follows:

PC: C:\project\quickstart
Mac: /project/quickstart

Step 3 – Proxy Server

Note: If you connect through a proxy server you may need to modify Windows / Preferences / General / Network Connections.

Step 4 – Download the QuickStart Project

Download ZIP’ the QuickStart project [selecting the green ‘Clone or download‘ button on the right] and unzip to an Eclipse workspace folder:

PC: C:\project\quickstart
Mac: /project/quickstart

Step 5 – Import using Gradle

Right-click in the Package Explorer view and select Import… — type ‘Gradle’ in the filter and select ‘Existing Gradle Project’

The Project root directory is ‘justify-quickstart-master‘ . Use defaults for other options.

Step 6 – Run JUnit Tests

Highlight the justify-quickstart-master project and right-click to ‘Run As’  ‘JUnit Test’.  If properly configured the JUnit 5 tests run GREEN

Step 7 – Explore!
