Chapter 1. Errai Maven Archetype

In order to get you going quickly, we've provided a project archetype, that allows you to create a project skeleton similiar to the one we use for building the examples. It's based on the maven archetype plugin http://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-archetype-plugin/ and needs to be invoked from the command line:

mvn archetype:generate \
-DarchetypeGroupId=org.jboss.errai.archetypes \
-DarchetypeArtifactId=bus-quickstart \
-DarchetypeVersion=2.0.Beta1 \

When invoking the archetype build you will be asked to provide the maven groupId, artifactId and package name your GWT application should use:

Define value for groupId: : foo.bar
Define value for artifactId: : gwt-app
Define value for version: 1.0-SNAPSHOT: :
Define value for package: foo.bar: : foo.bar.ui
Confirm properties configuration:
groupId: foo.bar
artifactId: gwt-app
version: 1.0-SNAPSHOT
package: foo.bar.ui
Y: :

You will be left with a maven build structure, including references to the GWT SDK and the Errai dependencies necessary to build, test, package, and launch a simple application.

To launch the GWT development mode, change into the project directory (name corresponding to the provided artifactId) and type:

mvn gwt:run

The example application also comes with an integration test suite that exercises most of its client-side and server-side code. To run the test suite, type:

mvn test -Pintegration-test

To generate a set of HTML documents under target/site/jacoco/ detailing code coverage of the most recent test run, type:

mvn site

By default the archetype does package the web application for Development Mode execution. To deploy your application to JBoss AS 7, you need to execute a clean rebuild using the JBoss profile (e.g. -Pjboss7 ).

mvn -Pjboss7 clean install
cp target/gwt-app.war $JBOSS_HOME/standalone/deployments
