This document covers requirements and guidelines to give hints about developing the tools you find here.

.NET Framework Versions

Libraries must be compatible with netstandard2.0 framework. Even though it is rather old, we keep support for that so that the Unity client system can use the libraries here.

Tools and services are implemented to support net6.0.

NuGet Package Versions

All NuGet packages here share a standard version number that is defined in Version.props.

Local Development Scripts

To develop and debug toolchain changes locally, you must set up a local NuGet repository and maintain the libraries that are being compiled there. There are many different ways to achieve that.

A straight-forward approach is listed below for both Windows and Mac users. These simple batch files allow you to quickly clear existing local packages, re-build everything and install the locally generated Ajuna.DotNet.Template.


set LOCAL_NUGET_BINARY=nuget.exe
set AJUNA_VERSION=0.1.25

dotnet build -p:Version=$AJUNA_VERSION --configuration Release

cd %AJUNA_ROOT%\Tools\Ajuna.DotNet
dotnet pack -p:Version=$AJUNA_VERSION

rem Clear local NuGet cache
rmdir /S /Q "%LOCAL_NUGET_CACHE%\ajuna.dotnet"
rmdir /S /Q "%LOCAL_NUGET_CACHE%\ajuna.dotnet.template"
rmdir /S /Q "%LOCAL_NUGET_CACHE%\ajuna.servicelayer"
rmdir /S /Q "%LOCAL_NUGET_CACHE%\ajuna.servicelayer.model"
rmdir /S /Q "%LOCAL_NUGET_CACHE%\ajuna.aspnetcore"
rmdir /S /Q "%LOCAL_NUGET_CACHE%\ajuna.dotnet.template"

rem Clear NuGet packages from local feed
rmdir /S /Q "%LOCAL_NUGET_ROOT%\ajuna.dotnet"
rmdir /S /Q "%LOCAL_NUGET_ROOT%\ajuna.dotnet.template"
rmdir /S /Q "%LOCAL_NUGET_ROOT%\ajuna.servicelayer"
rmdir /S /Q "%LOCAL_NUGET_ROOT%\ajuna.servicelayer.model"
rmdir /S /Q "%LOCAL_NUGET_ROOT%\ajuna.aspnetcore"
rmdir /S /Q "%LOCAL_NUGET_ROOT%\ajuna.dotnet.template"

rem Add Ajuna.DotNet, Ajuna.DotNet.Template to NuGet

%LOCAL_NUGET_BINARY% add %AJUNA_ROOT%\Ajuna.ServiceLayer.Model\bin\Release\Ajuna.ServiceLayer.Model.%AJUNA_VERSION%.nupkg -Source %LOCAL_NUGET_ROOT%

rem Add Ajuna.AspNetCore to NuGet
%LOCAL_NUGET_BINARY% add %AJUNA_ROOT%\Ajuna.AspNetCore\bin\Release\Ajuna.AspNetCore.%AJUNA_VERSION%.nupkg -Source %LOCAL_NUGET_ROOT%

rem Install .NET new template
dotnet new --install Ajuna.DotNet.Template


export AJUNA_ROOT="/Documents/Development/Ajuna.SDK" 
export LOCAL_NUGET_ROOT="/Documents/Development/_LocalNugetPackages"
export LOCAL_NUGET_CACHE="/Users/{yourUserName}/.nuget/packages"
export AJUNA_VERSION="0.1.25" # Using this variable, you override the one set in the project/solution settings

set -m

dotnet build -p:Version=$AJUNA_VERSION --configuration Release  

cd $AJUNA_ROOT/Tools/Ajuna.DotNet
dotnet pack -p:Version=$AJUNA_VERSION

dotnet new --install Ajuna.DotNet.Template

Once you have created the sh file, do not forget to set the permissions accordingly in order to allow it to be executed.

chmod 755

Using these scripts should get you started on both platforms on how to maintain the local NuGet packages.

Having this installed, you can scaffold a new project as documented in the Project Generation section.

Debugging & Testing


Since the new .NET template provides the absolute minimum to scaffold the projects, you can debug and inspect the actual code generators. Debug Ajuna.DotNet, like any other project.


First, set the environment variable AJUNA_USE_MOCKUP_PROVIDER


Check if set with this command which should return true


If it is the first time, you will be asked for certificate, when running the rest client


Afterward you can execute the rest service in

dotnet run --framework net6.0

Execute tests
