Fast-forward to install-jdk.sh section.

Execute Bach.java on-the-fly

This section will help you get started with Bach.jsh used as a remote load-file of jshell.

0. Install JDK 11 or later

Make sure you have JDK 11 or later installed and configured. jshell should be executable from any directory and print its version via:

<path/> jshell --version
jshell 11.0.2
1. Source Bach.jsh into JShell

Open a command shell and change into the directory containing your modular Java project.

<path/> jshell https://bit.ly/bach-jsh

That’s all you need to build a modular Java project.

Note: the shortened https://bit.ly/bach-jsh expands to https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sormuras/bach/master/src/bach/Bach.jsh

For immediate results, such as fail-fast on errors, use:

jshell --execution=local https://bit.ly/bach-jsh

For more information what Bach.java is doing at runtime, use:

jshell --execution=local -J-Debug=true https://bit.ly/bach-jsh

For more details consult the output of jshell --help.

Bootstrap Bach.java

This section will help you get started with Bach.java used as single file source code Java program.

0. Install JDK 11 or later

Make sure you have JDK 11 or later installed and configured. jshell should be executable from any directory and print its version via:

<path/> jshell --version
jshell 11.0.2
1. Create demo directory

Create an empty directory and change into it. On Windows, you may open a command prompt and enter mkdir demo & cd demo. On Linux and Mac OS, it could read mkdir demo && cd demo.

<path/demo/> | // blinking cursor
2. Download Bach.java

Either download a copy of Bach.java from GitHub manually or let jshell do it for you:

<path/demo/> jshell https://bit.ly/boot-bach

Note: the shortened https://bit.ly/boot-bach expands to https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sormuras/bach/master/boot.jsh

<path/demo/>

3. Scaffold, build and launch demo project

Remember to prepend ./ before each bach command when running on Linux or Mac OS.

<path/demo/> bach build
<path/demo/> bach launch
