$ mvn clean compile install
  1. Compile the server maven project
$ mvn clean assembly:assembly

###Build Client:

$ mvn clean assembly:assembly -Dmaven.test.skip=true

Start jMBS


jMBS Start Server

$ java -jar \
-Djava.rmi.server.codebase=file:../RMI/target/RMI-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar \


jMBS Start Client

$ java -jar -Djava.rmi.server.codebase=file:../RMI/target/RMI-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar \
-Djava.security.policy=target/classes/security.policy target/Client-jar-with-dependencies.jar
