In this page, we briefly discuss setting up a productive environment for the assignment. The following pages provide an high-level view of the architecture and main components of the provided source code.

Setting up

You should start by cloning the repository containing the source code.

git clone

Working in IntelliJ

For working on this project, we recommend using the IntelliJ-IDEA development environment. It is available in INSA’s classrooms as well as on

To import the project in IntelliJ (once IntelliJ is running):

  • Open a new project : Open project or File > Open
  • Select the file in the cloned repository.
  • Select Open as project.

To run the program in IntelliJ, you can

  • Right click on the src/main/java/Jobshop/Main class in the project view.
  • Select Run Main.main(). It should complain that some arguments are missing.
  • Give it the expected command line arguments : Run > Edit Configuration, then fill in the Program arguments text box.

Working on the command line (Gradle)

Compilation instructions are given for Linux. On Windows you can use the gradlew.bat script (but you are on your own).

❯ ./gradlew build    # Compiles the project

The project can be executed directly with gradle by specifying the arguments like so :

❯ ./gradlew run --args="--solver basic random --instance aaa1 ft"

You can also build an executable jar file, and run it with the java command. This is especially useful if you want to run it on another machine.

 # Create a jar file with all dependencies in build/libs/JSP.jar
❯ ./gradlew jar     
# Run the jar file. Only requires a Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
❯ java -jar build/libs/JSP.jar --solver basic --instance ft06
