In the previous workspace step, we have cloned related repositories to the networknt workspace in the home directory.
In this step, we are going to build the light-codegen so that we can use the command line to scaffold projects.
Maven is the build tool for light-codegen, and we have the maven wrapper included in the repository. If you don’t have Maven installed on your local computer, you can use the mvnw or mvnw.cmd to build the project.
./mvnw clean install
If you have Maven installed locally, you can use the mvn command to build the light-codegen.
mvn clean install
If there is no error in the build process, the command line CLI tool codegen-cli.jar is ready to use in light-codegen/codegen-cli/target folder.
In the next step, we are going to generate a server project to host the two services we are going to build later.
