This guide covers configuring Java projects on Semaphore. If you’re new to Semaphore please read our Guided tour first.
Example project with Spring Boot and Docker
Semaphore provides a tutorial and demo application with a working CI/CD pipeline that you can use to get started quickly:
Supported Java versions
Semaphore provides major Java versions and tools preinstalled. You can find information about them in the Ubuntu image reference.
Java 8 and 10 are supported. Java 8 is the default. You can switch to Java 10 with
sem-version. Here's an example:
blocks: - name: Tests task: prologue: commands: - sem-version java 10 jobs: - name: Tests commands: - java --version
Assuming you're using Maven, it's possible to cache dependencies. You may also cache compiled code and tests as well. The exact implementation varies depending on your tools. In the following configuration example, we download dependencies, compile code and warm the cache in the first block, then use the cache in subsequent blocks.
version: v1.0 name: Java & Maven Example agent: machine: type: e1-standard-2 os_image: ubuntu1804 blocks: - name: Setup task: env_vars: # Set maven to use a local directory. This is required for # the cache util. It must be set in all blocks. - name: MAVEN_OPTS value: "-Dmaven.repo.local=.m2" jobs: - name: Dependencies commands: - checkout - cache restore maven-$SEMAPHORE_GIT_BRANCH-$(checksum pom.xml),maven-$SEMAPHORE_GIT_BRANCH,maven-master # Download all JARs possible and compile as much as possible # Use -q to reduce output spam - mvn -q dependency:go-offline test-compile - cache store maven-$SEMAPHORE_GIT_BRANCH-$(checksum pom.xml) .m2 - cache store build-$SEMAPHORE_GIT_SHA target - name: Tests task: env_vars: - name: MAVEN_OPTS value: "-Dmaven.repo.local=.m2" prologue: commands: - checkout - cache restore maven-$SEMAPHORE_GIT_BRANCH-$(checksum pom.xml),maven-$SEMAPHORE_GIT_BRANCH,maven-master - cache restore build-$SEMAPHORE_GIT_SHA jobs: - name: Everything commands: # Again, -q to reduce output spam. Replace with command # that executes tests - mvn -q package
