Setting Up Java EE 7 Projects With Maven 3

Java EE 7 only requires a minimalistic pom.xml (21 lines).

The essential pom.xml was transformed to a maven archetype (=wizard) and submitted to maven central. Now it is available under the group id: com.airhacks and artifact id: javaee7-essentials-archetype.

The archetype can be directly executed with:

mvn archetype:generate -Dfilter=com.airhacks:javaee7-essentials-archetype
