Kickstarting Real World Java EE 6 Projects With Maven 3
- Install maven 3
- Search for: webapp-javaee6. Choose it by entering the corresponding number (currently 268, but it can change at any time) to the wizard.
- Answer the remaining questions (groupId, artifactId, use the highest archetype version)
- If you plan to write some JUnit tests, replace the Java EE 6 API dependency with appserver implementation.
- Open the project with NetBeans 7 (Java EE). Start with e.g. EJB 3.1
- Click on the project and "Run" it. NetBeans 7 will start the bundled GlassFish 3.1 and deploy the application. JBoss 6 is supported as well, but has to be downloaded separately.
There is no need to use
mvn archetype:generatefirst. You could start straight with NetBeans 7 as well. NetBeans 7 also uses Maven 3 archetypes to generate the project structure for you. It even tries to download the newest artifact version from the maven repo. There is no (proprietary) secret sauce.

Hi Adam... there is a misleading (*lol*) typo in the title of this post...

This is why I love Netbeans. No secret sauce, no special project settings magic; the easiest way to set up a headless build for your project !
Such simplicity is a real achievement Bravo Netbeans team.

"Search for: webapp-javaee6 .. (currently 268..)" - that's the best joke on usability I've heard for a while :))

if you already know the name: "webapp-javaee6" - you can directly enter it.
Hence NetBeans uses exactly the same mechanism, I always use NetBeans for initial setup. That is very usable - only few clicks :-)

Adam this would be a much more helpful post if you could provide the filter string here.
mvn archetype:generate -Dfilter=org.apache:struts
