Leg Up

Do you need a leg up?

Use this gadget to generate a command that you can run at the console to get Apache Maven to create a simple project for you using one of our archetypes. The projects you will generate will include enough configuration, code and/or some tests to get you started, quickly. Our archetypes currently support various combinations of Spring, Guice, WarpPersist, JPA (with one or more implementation from EclipseLink, Hibernate, OpenJPA) and Wicket.

Instructions

Assuming you have Maven (and Java) properly installed and the Maven bin folder is on your path, just select the archetype that suits your needs, enter the other information specific to your project and then click on "Generate Maven Command". Copy the generated command and paste it into your console. Once you've run this command, you'll find your project in a folder named the same as the "Artifact Id" you used. If you cd to that folder and try "mvn test".

Credits

This idea was partly inspired by this page from the Wicket team. You may like to look at that page for more detailed instructions about using a Maven archetype to create a project for your IDE.

    ... these jWeekend courses have raised the bar for trainers everywhere. [show]
    "It's a pleasure to attend training courses (Swing 2-day and Spring 2-day) that do more than survey the ground and jump through the hoops. Challenging, stimulating and informative, these jWeekend courses have raised the bar for trainers everywhere."

    ... I cannot recommend jWeekend's courses highly enough and only wish we could bring them in every time a new developer comes on board here. [show]
    "The jWeekend instructor, Cemal, was incredibly helpful and flexible. The course gave our development team, which had been struggling adjusting to the "Wicket way", the understanding needed to become effective using this great framework. I cannot recommend jWeekend's courses highly enough and only wish we could bring them in every time a new developer comes on board here."

    "Just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed the course very much. It saved me many hours so far while designing and implementing our Wicket-based web solution. We have now integrated Wicket with our existing GUI model and server services, and the solution seems to be promising."

    ... and I especially thank you (Cemal) for going through this new and interesting material and explaining complex points so clearly and thoroughly with emphasis on good design. [show]
    "This is a very good course (custom Java, OO, Wicket) and I especially thank you (Cemal) for going through this new and interesting material and explaining complex points so clearly and thoroughly with emphasis on good design. Please accept lunch on me!"

    I would definitely recommend jWeekend. [show]

  • Per Ingemar , it-huset, Sweden , Sweden
    We have covered a lot of material and the course has been very good. [show]
    "We have covered a lot of material and the course (Wicket) has been very good. The level of interactivity is perfect. Thank you for spending so much time on each exercise, challenging me until the material was absolutely clear. We went well beyond my expectations of a 2 day course."
  • The 2-day Swing course was informative and brilliantly paced [show]
    "The 2-day Swing course was informative and brilliantly paced, despite the mixed knowledge of the various participants. The instructor had excellent knowledge of the subject and was willing and able to answer any questions thrown at him. This included subjects only loosely related to the subject matter (such as Design Patterns and Threads in general.) All in all, a recommended course for anyone using Swing."
  • Lawernce Blomfield , P&O Ferries , UK

    The 2-day course on Apache Wicket was a great introduction to the framework [show]
    "The 2-day course on Apache Wicket was a great introduction to the framework. The content was well laid out with each module advancing in logical progression. The corresponding practical tutorials reflected this building a good comprehension of wicket fundamentals. I was also impressed with the enthusiasm of Al and Cemal who not only expressed themselves eloquently but also took pains to ensure everyone kept up and encouraged open discussion on related topics time allowing. A very educating and enjoyable day, thanks guys!"

    the Wicket course was exactly what we were looking for [show]
    "Thanks for an interesting and productive weekend. I felt the Wicket course was exactly what we were looking for and had a good balance between presentations, discussion and hands on tinkering. Even though our group came from radically different development backgrounds I think everyone came away with a useful understanding of the framework. Al has a clear presentation style and you both successfully fielded queries from beginners, experienced wicketeers, and talented web developers used to other ways of doing things... i doff my cap to you."

    It is amazing how much you can learn in just 2 days! [show]
    "A subcontractor had recommended the Apache Wicket course arranged by JWeekend, I finally found the time to participate March 21-22. Alastair and Cemal did a very good job at teaching Wicket with lots of hands-on tutorials. It is amazing how much you can learn in just 2 days! My ideal web stack is now wicket/spring/jpa/hibernate and I feel very efficient :)"

    a very enjoyable and valuable experience and I recommend this course for anyone [show]
    "The material we covered in 2 days was incredible and the way in which complexity and level of detail was covered was quite unique. Cemal has given us a very enjoyable and valuable experience and I recommend this course for anyone who has done a bit of Java looking to move to the next step."
