Setup Local Database

Populate the Database

To create a new database schema and populate the database with demo data:

  1. In the command line, navigate to the extensions/database directory.
  2. Run the following command to run the Data Population tool:
    mvn clean install -Preset-db
Tip: Update Database without Dropping and Recreating Schema
To update an existing database without dropping and recreating the schema, run the following command:
mvn clean install -Pupdate-db
For more information, see Data Population - Patterns and Data Population - Extensions Data.
Tip: Troubleshooting

Database settings are defined in your .m2/settings.xml file. If there are errors connecting to the database or creating a new schema, you may need to update these settings to match your local database settings.
