Java EE 7 / Java 8 "Boundary Control Entity" (BCE) Archetype Released

The JavaEE 7 / Java 8 Maven BCE archetype is released.

The archetype generates the "Boundary Control Entity" or "Entity Control Boundary" (BCE / ECB) example.

For scaffolding input the following command into your CLI:

mvn archetype:generate -Dfilter=com.airhacks:javaee-bce-archetype

Usually we spend a significant amount of time discussing external and internal structure of components during the Java EE Workshops at MUC Airport, particularly at: Effective Java EE 7 and Java EE Architecture days.

Any questions left? Join the conversation each first Monday of the month at 6 P.M. live. No registration or any other commitment required.

NEW dates, new workshop: Java EE 7 Workshops: Bootstrap, Effective, Architectures, JavaScript Bootstrap and HTML 5 December, 7th-11th
NEW: Java EE 7 Testing-- Available For Streaming


A book about rethinking Java EE Patterns


It might take some time until the archetype appears in the catalog at maven central.

If you would like to get the example now, execute:

git clone

Enjoy the lightweight stuff!,

Nothing on this page gives me a succinct description of what a BCE is, or why I would care. Nor do any of the links look like they are going to have that either.

Perhaps you're not expecting visitors who aren't already in that loop, but I got here from the netbeans start page.

I hoped the screencast clarified that:

ECB is just a clear way to structure your Java EE app,

thanks for following my stuff!,
