Step 4: Upload the source code and the buildspec file

(Previous step: Step 3: Create the buildspec file)

In this step, you add the source code and build spec file to the input bucket.

Using your operating system's zip utility, create a file named MessageUtil.zip that includes MessageUtil.java, TestMessageUtil.java, pom.xml, and buildspec.yml.

The MessageUtil.zip file's directory structure must look like this.

MessageUtil.zip |-- pom.xml |-- buildspec.yml `-- src |-- main | `-- java | `-- MessageUtil.java `-- test `-- java `-- TestMessageUtil.java
Important

Do not include the (root directory name) directory, only the directories and files in the (root directory name) directory.

Upload the MessageUtil.zip file to the input bucket named codebuild-region-ID-account-ID-input-bucket.

Important

For CodeCommit, GitHub, and Bitbucket repositories, by convention, you must store a build spec file named buildspec.yml in the root (top level) of each repository or include the build spec declaration as part of the build project definition. Do not create a ZIP file that contains the repository's source code and build spec file.

For build input stored in S3 buckets only, you must create a ZIP file that contains the source code and, by convention, a build spec file named buildspec.yml at the root (top level) or include the build spec declaration as part of the build project definition.

If you want to use a different name for your build spec file, or you want to reference a build spec in a location other than the root, you can specify a build spec override as part of the build project definition. For more information, see Buildspec file name and storage location.
