As an example, here are the ways to invoke a SnowBlossomNode:

  • From a release zip:
   java -jar SnowBlossomNode_deploy.jar node.conf
  • From bazel:
   bazel build :all
   bazel-bin/SnowBlossomNode node.conf
  • From bazel as standalone jar (you can copy this jar to other machines):
   bazel build :SnowBlossomNode_deploy.jar
   java -jar bazel-bin/SnowBlossomNode_deploy.jar node.conf
