Clone the following projects for AMPPD at AMP Github home

  • amppd:
    • the main AMPPD app
    • In Eclipse, you can run the app with Maven clean or as Spring Boot App
    • In Eclipse, you can run the tests with Maven test or as JUnit test
  • galaxy:
    • currently serves as the backend workflow engine for amppd, also used for workflow UI's in the pilot project
    • To run it, go to the root directory where galaxy is installed, and type "./"
