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 workshops: MicroProfile with Quarkus and Micro Frontends with Web Components at MUC airport the podcast:

Stay in touch:


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!,
