Development Cycle – Compile source code to jar using SBT

As part of this topic, we will build the jar file and run as the jar file

  • For building the jar file we typically use a tool called SBT
  • SBT stands for a simple build tool
  • Scala applications can be compiled in many other ways but SBT is the most popular one

Set up SBT

  • Go to this site to download the SBT
  • Install and download the sbt as mentioned in the site
  • Launch sbt by hitting sbt in the terminal
  • Go to the path(in my case its /Research/code/scalademo/retail) and enter the command sbt package. It will compile the source code
  • Once it is compiled we can run the program by using the command sbt run.
