This page describes how to compile and run code samples shown in the lectures. Make sure you have setup your environment first.

You are allowed to use these samples in your assignments. If you do so, please make a comment in the code indicating which one you used.

Fetch a local copy of the samples

Samples are all in a public Git repository. To get a copy, git clone the repository URL:
$ git clone cs349

You should see the following directory structure. Each of the numbered folders represents a section in the course, and contains multiple projects. All of them are built using Gradle and IntelliJ and should be runnable from within the IDE.

├── 01.Intro
├── 02.JavaFX
├── 03.Graphics
├── 04.Events
├── 05.Widgets
├── 06.Layout
├── 07.MVC
├── 08.Android
├── 09.Extra
├── starter
├── starter-commandline
└── starter-graphical

Building from the Command-Line

Gradle projects can be built and executed directly from the command-line:

  $ cd cs349

  $ cd 01.Intro/01.hello_world

  $ gradle build
  Starting a Gradle Daemon (subsequent builds will be faster)
  5 actionable tasks: 5 up-to-date

  $ gradle run
  > Task :run
  Hello world!
  3 actionable tasks: 2 executed, 1 up-to-date

Building from IntelliJ

Projects can also be built in IntelliJ:


The public repository contains two starter projects that you can use. Both of these are empty projects that are buildable from the command-line or within IntelliJ. You can copy and modify these if you wish.
