This video explains the exercise files.
- [Instructor] If you have access to the exercise files, I'd like to take a moment to show you how to use those for this course. Within the exercise files, you will notice that there is a folder for each chapter. Within each chapter, you will notice that there is a folder for each video, and within each video, you will notice that there is a folder for the beginning and ending state of that video. Within the begin state, or the in state, you will see that there is going to be a config folder once we bring that in.
That file I'll ask you to move to your desktop so that you can actually use that with our configuration server. The spring cloud folder actually contains all of the source code information that we will need for our course. And in this example I have three specific projects as part of the source code. Now I'm going to show you how I would use this source code within my IDE, which is IntelliJ. I'm presented here with an empty project.
From within this project, I'm going to go ahead and import the source code. So I'm going to go to my modules folder, and I'm going to import a module. From the exercise files themselves, I'm going to select a chapter, and then the video, and then the state that I'm in, and then I'm going to of to the spring cloud folder. At that point I can pick my config server and open that project. I'm going to import it from an external module since we will be using Maven.
And I will go ahead and select through all of the options. At this point I will have the source code for the config server available within my IDE. And I would repeat that for all of the other projects within this video.
