What Archetypes are available?

Maven's standard archetypes

View the released archetypes in the central repository at ibiblio:

  • http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/org/apache/maven/archetypes/
    • quickstart: creates a default pom.xml, the src and a test folders (including a default App.java/AppTest.java).
    • site: quickstart + some filters + a default site structure. Site includes a second language (french). Note that the site archetype can only be run to create a new project, it can not be run after a project was initialized with another archetype.
    • webapp: for creating web applications.

View the latest source code for Maven archetypes in the Subversion repository:

mvn archetype:create -DgroupId=mygroupid -DartifactId=artifactid -DarchetypeArtifactId=maven-archetype-webapp

Tips and Surprises

There is currently no way to escape expressions so that they are not filtered. See http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/ARCHETYPE-39

You can, however, prevent an entire file from being filtered:

<archetype>
  ...
  <resources>
    <resource filtered="false">src/main/resources/example/package.properties</resource>
    ...
  </resources>
  ...
</archetype>

Similarly, there is a <resource encoding="..."> attribute.

Examples 

  • No labels
