Using mvn for creating and running a boilerplate minimal java application

Using mvn for creating and running a boilerplate minimal java application

It is almost a must to use mvn or any other build tool when dealing with java.

With mvn you can start a minimal simple all included java application and you run that too.. Just follow this. I will assume you are on linux or mac environment for this and also I am assuming you already have maven installed
Create a new folder and say mavenrocks

mkdir mavenrocks

Then add the following

mvn archetype:generate

What it does is, it will use a plugin to create a boilerplate application that holds basic src files along with standard directory structure.
if you do the listing on the created folder you will see:

.
./pom.xml
./src
./src/main
./src/main/java
./src/main/java/com
./src/main/java/com/gullele
./src/main/java/com/gullele/App.java
./src/test
./src/test/java
./src/test/java/com
./src/test/java/com/gullele
./src/test/java/com/gullele/AppTest.java
./target
./target/classes
./target/classes/com
./target/classes/com/gullele
./target/classes/com/gullele/App.class
./target/maven-status
./target/maven-status/maven-compiler-plugin
./target/maven-status/maven-compiler-plugin/compile
./target/maven-status/maven-compiler-plugin/compile/default-compile
./target/maven-status/maven-compiler-plugin/compile/default-compile/createdFiles.lst
./target/maven-status/maven-compiler-plugin/compile/default-compile/inputFiles.lst

and to run it

mvn execute:java -Dexec.mainClass="com.gullele.App"
