What is it?
ModeShape quickstarts are a collection of self-contained projects, that demonstrate how to use ModeShape when installed as part of JBoss AS. Each quickstart is a small, specific, focused, working example that can be used as a reference for your own project.
All you need to build the quickstarts is Java 8.0 (Java SDK 1.8) or better, Maven 3.0 or better. Each quickstart produces a web application (WAR) that is designed to be run on JBoss Wildfly 9 or 10.
The following quickstarts are available:
- modeshape-cdi - shows how you use CDI to inject various ModeShape JCR object instances
- modeshape-cli - shows how you use the JBoss AS CLI to configure a ModeShape subsystem
- modeshape-clustering - shows how you can configure multiple ModeShape nodes to run in a cluster
- modeshape-ejb - shows how you can use ModeShape from different types of EJBs
- modeshape-servlet - shows how you can use ModeShape from a standard web application Servlet
Packaging and distributing
NOTE: The following build command assumes you have configured your Maven user settings. If you have not, you must use the
file from the root of this project. See this ModeShape community article
for help on how to install and configure Maven 3.
To create a zip distribution with all the quickstarts, run the following Maven command:
mvn clean verify -Pdist
The output will be placed in the target folder.
The ModeShape project
ModeShape is an open source implementation of the JCR 2.0 (JSR-283) specification and standard API. To your applications, ModeShape looks and behaves like a regular JCR repository. Applications can search, query, navigate, change, version, listen for changes, etc. But ModeShape can store that content in a variety of back-end stores (including relational databases, Infinispan data grids, JBoss Cache, etc.), or it can access and update existing content from other kinds of systems (including file systems, SVN repositories, JDBC database metadata, and other JCR repositories). ModeShape's connector architecture means that you can write custom connectors to access any kind of system. And ModeShape can even federate multiple back-end systems into a single, unified virtual repository.
For more information on ModeShape, including getting started guides, reference guides, and downloadable binaries, visit the project's website at http://www.modeshape.org or follow us on our blog or on Twitter. Or hop into our IRC chat room and talk our community of contributors and users.
The official Git repository for the project is also on GitHub at http://github.com/ModeShape/modeshape.
