The ShARC HPC cluster was decommissioned on the 30th of November 2023 at 17:00. It is no longer possible for users to access that cluster.


sbt is a build tool for Scala, Java, and more.

Interactive Usage

After connecting to the cluster, start an interactive session.

Load a particular version of sbt using:

module load dev/sbt/0.13.13

This makes the sbt command available to your session.

You will also need to load a version of Java. For example

module load apps/java/jdk1.8.0_102/binary
