Mike Jennings from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has created a Spring MVC Maven Archetype for Sakai. This generates a fully functioning application for Sakai, complete with service layers, from a single Maven command.
This is just like the Apache Wicket version I created. Nice one Mike!
I’ve just released it into the Sakai Maven repository so it is now available for everyone to use. The command to generate a Sakai app from the archetype is:
mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=org.sakaiproject.maven-archetype -DarchetypeArtifactId=sakai-spring-maven-archetype -DarchetypeVersion=1.2 -DarchetypeRepository=https://source.sakaiproject.org/maven2/
mvn clean install sakai:deploy and you are on your way.
Any issues should be reported in JIRA: https://jira.sakaiproject.org/browse/MARCH
