Convert Silk4j project to maven

Jump to solution

Hello everyone,

I wonder what happens when you convert a Silk4j project to a maven project.


Do you break anything?

 

 

Thank you in advance

Hi!
That shouldn’t cause any problems, but if you want to build your project using Maven (for example on a CI server) you will need to add the JTF library as a Maven dependency as well. The easiest way to do that is to add the JTF to your local Maven repository and then add a dependency in your pom.xml file. In this blog post we explored that idea, but we did it the other way round: We converted an existing Maven project into a Silk4J project: community.microfocus.com/.../embracing-open-source-maven-and-jenkins-2

Best regards,
Ralph

Sure! The biggest advantage in my opinion is that you can easily leverage other 3rd party libraries if you use Maven. Apart from that, it can be convenient to use Maven if you build the application that you want to test with Maven as well, as you can then integrate the tests more nicely with the build process.
