Where is c9's "Build.xml" file location?

I’m currently trying to code a slack bot that uses the Slack Web APIin Java. (flowctrl/slack-api)

The issue that i’m having is that in order to add the slack-api to an application it requires you to “Add the JitPack repository to your build file” (https://github.com/flowctrl/slack-api#maven)

Doing the following I can:

  • Remove the Maven2 and install Maven 3
  • Create a new project
  • Build the test project
    However there is no build file that i can see of even when looking through the hidden files in order to add a repo to it.

Steps done:

Install Maven 3:
    	sudo apt-get update
    	sudo apt-get install maven
    	sudo apt-get remove maven2
    	export MAVEN_OPTS="-Xmx256m"
    	
Create a Project:
    	mvn archetype:generate -DgroupId=my-custom.slackbot -DartifactId=slack-bot -DarchetypeArtifactId=maven-archetype-quickstart -DinteractiveMode=false
    	
Build:
    	cd slack-bot
    	mvn package
    	
Test build:
    	java -cp target/slack-bot-1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar my-custom.slackbot.App

I know you can click"Run > Build System > New Build System"
However the runner there looks nothing like what it requires me to add.

Any ideas?

The build file for maven is usually called pom.xml and should be in the root folder of your project.
