This video provides a brief walkthrough of the exercise files.
- [Instructor] If you have access to the Exercise Files, you can follow along with me as we go through the course. You will see when you open up the Exercise Files folder that there is a folder for each chapter. Within the chapter, you will find a folder for each video, and within each video, you will find a start and an end state for the code that we are going to create during that video. Within each of these start and end Exercise Files, you will find the actual project that we need to import into our IDE.
I'm going to show you how I would import this and the IDE that I use, which IntelliJ. So we will open up the application. I will import a project. I will open the specific chapter and video, and in this case, I'm going to open up the start, and then I click on that project, and that project will contain the pom.xml.
I will then open the project itself and import this as a Maven project. I will select all of my defaults and Finish. At this point, Maven will run its traditional dependency management routine, and I will now have all of my project loaded and ready to work with.
