Once all the steps to build the project have been indicated, it is time to initialize the project. In this step, we are simply building the project once, without any modification. This allows us to identify which parts of the code end up in which jar files and helps us to automatically detect the different endpoints defined in the code that can be tested with CI Fuzz. This is a lengthy process that could take a few minutes to complete.
To run the initialization, click on the Plus button next to “Initialize Project”:
Depending on the size of your project, this might take a while, since we are building the whole project by default. You can of course disable compilation of parts of the code that are not relevant for the fuzz tests, like already existing unit tests. For Maven, this can be done by adding -DskipTests to the mvn call.
