just build

What does it do?

just build simplifies building Spring Boot applications with Maven and Gradle.

Executing just build <target> picks up the best Maven/Gradle command (mvn, ./mvnw, mvnd, gradle, ./gradlew) and translates the target into a Maven or Gradle goal depending on which build tool is used in the project:

Command Description Maven Gradle
just build or just build jvm builds a default target (if not configured, builds an executable jar) mvn package gradle build
just build native builds a native executable mvn native:compile -Pnative gradle nativeCompile
just build native-image builds a Docker Image with a native executable mvn spring-boot:build-image -Pnative gradle bootBuildImage
just build image builds a Docker Image with an executable JAR mvn spring-boot:build-image gradle bootBuildImage


Option Description Maven Gradle
--skip-tests skips tests compilation and execution -Dmaven.test.skip=true -x test
--quick like --skip-test but also skips all possible checks and docs generation -Dmaven.test.skip=true -Dasciidoctor.skip=true -Djgassistant.skip=true -Dspotbugs.skip=true -Dcheckstyle.skip=true -Dinvoker.skip=true -Ddocker.skip=true -Djapicmp.skip=true -Dlicense.skip=true -Dpmd.skip=true -Dmaven.javadoc.skip=true=true -Djacoco.skip=true -x check
