We have restructured the SDK to let you create modules with ease. This new format reduces configuration, simplifies building, eases dependency management and makes it easier to set up the development environment of your choosing.
In past versions of the SDK, developers were provided a sizable zip file, complete with jars, javadocs, this guide, and some third party dependencies. Builds were run using Ant, through the included Build directory. This all made sense when the original SDK was conceived – Ant was stable, Maven just stabilizing and Gradle wasn't even born. However, we're not in
With repositories like Maven Central,and dependency management through Maven and Ivy, Java has moved to the cloud. With the new Ignition 7.7 SDK, we have taken the same approach to provideyou with simple dependency management, modern build tools, and open source example modules on our Github page.
