Setting up Data Population CLI Tool

Setting up Data Population CLI Tool

The following files are required to run Data Population from the command line:
Artifact Module File name
Data Population Data database/ext-data ext-data-<version>.jar
Data Population CLI Tool database/ext-data-population-cli ext-data-population-cli-<version>-package.zip
To get the files:
  • Download the files directly from the Nexus repository.
  • Build the files in the local development environment:
    1. To build the data population client tool, navigate to the extensions/data-population module and run the following command:
      mvn clean install
    2. To build data population data , navigate to the extensions/database module and run the following command:
      mvn clean install
  • Extract the files from the deployment package that is built by the deployment/ext-deployment-package module.
You can use an environment-specific directory that is defined in the extension module, such as the environments/local directory or use an external configuration directory that is not part of the extension module, for example production environment. If you use an external configuration directory, ensure that the directory has the same structure as the environments/local directory.
