Getting started with AWS CodeBuild using the AWS CLI

In this tutorial, you use AWS CodeBuild to build a collection of sample source code input files (called build input artifacts or build input) into a deployable version of the source code (called build output artifact or build output). Specifically, you instruct CodeBuild to use Apache Maven, a common build tool, to build a set of Java class files into a Java Archive (JAR) file. You do not need to be familiar with Apache Maven or Java to complete this tutorial.

You can work with CodeBuild through the CodeBuild console, AWS CodePipeline, the AWS CLI, or the AWS SDKs. This tutorial demonstrates how to use CodeBuild with the AWS CLI. For information about using CodePipeline, see Use CodePipeline with CodeBuild.


The steps in this tutorial require you to create resources (for example, an S3 bucket) that might result in charges to your AWS account. These include possible charges for CodeBuild and for AWS resources and actions related to Amazon S3, AWS KMS, and CloudWatch Logs. For more information, see CodeBuild pricing, Amazon S3 pricing, AWS Key Management Service pricing, and Amazon CloudWatch pricing.
