Configure Intellij

Now that you have successfully connected to the Windows instance, the next step is to configure the development environment Intellij. This includes cloning the sources of the Flink application from this Github repository that is used in the following steps to analyze the incoming taxi data in real time.

  1. Double click on the Intellij icon on the Desktop

  2. When prompted, do not import any settings, confirm that you have read and accept the terms of the User Agreement, and choose to send (or not to send, depending on your preference) user statistics

  3. Accept the defaults by choosing Skip Remaining and Set Defaults in the Customize IntelliJ dialog

  4. On the welcome screen, choose Check out from Version Control and Git

  5. In the clone repository dialog, insert https://github.com/aws-samples/amazon-kinesis-analytics-taxi-consumer as URL and confirm with Clone

  6. When asked whether to open the IntelliJ IDEA project file, choose Yes. Note that, you will get a dependency failure after the completion of this step. This is expected and we have a remedy in the upcoming steps. For now move on to the next steps as the dependencies are being loaded.
