I am proud to announce the 1.1 release of the Sakai Wicket Maven Archetype. The archetype is an automatically generated Sakai tool, complete with API and tool layers wired together via Spring.
The major new feature in this release is a full DAO layer, backed by Spring JDBC including auto.ddl and database vendor detection. More Wicket components have also been added to show how a Sakai tool can render items from a database, add items via a form, as well as have paged lists.
The command to generate a working Sakai app from the archetype is:
mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=org.sakaiproject.maven-archetype -DarchetypeArtifactId=sakai-wicket-maven-archetype -DarchetypeVersion=1.1 -DarchetypeRepository=https://source.sakaiproject.org/maven2/
Then simply mvn clean install sakai:deploy and you are on your way.
