JavaFX REST Archetype
A Maven archetype for generating a basic JavaFX REST client-server starter project using Jetty and SpringFramework.
mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=com.zenjava -DarchetypeArtifactId=javafx-rest-archetype
This will generate a multi-module Maven project with three modules:
- client module: a simple JavaFX client that makes REST calls onto the server
- server module: a simple SpringMVC REST server
- common module: common classes shared between client and server (such as data beans)
After creating the project you can build it using Maven commands. From the generated base project directory type:
mvn clean install
Run the server from the base directory of the server module using:
Run the client from the base directory of the client module (using
mvn jfx:run is deprecated, because it does not respect launcher-settings).
Development and Deployment
This is just a quick starter. You most likely will want to open the base level POM in your favorite IDE and develop your project to your needs.
To build a deployment WAR for your server, run the following from the base project directory:
mvn clean install
And then copy the WAR file from the target directory and deploy this to your web server (e.g. Tomcat).
To build a deployment bundle for your client, run one of the JavaFX distribution mechanisms from the client module base directory, such as:
mvn clean jfx:jar
Which will build an executable JAR that you can execute(e.g. via double-clicking) to launch your client application.
The JavaFX Basic Archetype provides a Maven archetype for generating a basic JavaFX starter project.
