Minimalistic Java EE 8 / Jakarta EE + MicroProfile Quickstarter

A quickstart maven archetype for creating greenfield Java EE 8 / Jakarta EE project with MicroProfile 2+ APIs.

Fire up your CLI and type: mvn archetype:generate -Dfilter=com.airhacks:javaee8-essentials-archetype to create a fully fledged Java EE 8 "kB" project. Use the most recent version.

Also checkout: mvn archetype:generate tuning

In the IDE of your choice use the group com.airhacks, then the artifact id javaee8-essentials-archetype and also select the most recent version.

Shortcut (copy and paste, replace PROJECT_NAME and GROUP_ID):

mvn archetype:generate -o -DarchetypeGroupId=com.airhacks -DarchetypeArtifactId=javaee8-essentials-archetype -DarchetypeVersion=0.0.4 -Darchetype.interactive=false --batch-mode -Dversion=0.0.1 -DgroupId=GROUP_ID -DartifactId=PROJECT_NAME

The "Watch and Deploy" WAD tool works best with this archetype. It continuously watches and deploys your ThinWAR without any additional configuration.
