Chapter 1. Setting up the environment

Table of Contents



The goal of this chapter of the tutorial is to install (or check that you already have installed) a minimally needed set of software to build a Cayenne application.

Install Java

Obviously, JDK has to be installed. Cayenne 4.0 requires JDK 1.7 or newer.

Install IntelliJ IDEA

Download and install IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition. This tutorial is based on version 2016.3, still it should work with any recent IntelliJ IDEA version.
