Spring - mvnw not recognised - I have Maven installed!

Hello! I’m struggling to build the Spring project - help is appreciated!


PS C:\Users\Matt\Downloads\mySpringProject> mvnw sprint-boot:run
mvnw : The term ‘mvnw’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that
the path is correct and try again.

  • mvnw sprint-boot:run
  •   + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (mvnw:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
      + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

I couldn’t get that command to work either,
I just did stuff the old way …
compiling using javac JavaFileName.java
and running using java JavaFileName
(I had to do it for the file that had the main method in it, in the correct directory/folder)

I used the website mentioned for Spring Boot to download the relevant files, and I moved the files to the appropriate folder.)

Thanks Jan - I’ve downloaded the .jar for the spring-boot-maven-plugin (which seems to be the problem)
But do you know which is the folder for those files??
