        -DarchetypeArtifactId=spring-mvc-quickstart \
        -DarchetypeVersion=1.0.0 \
        -DgroupId=my.groupid \
        -DartifactId=my-artifactId \
        -Dversion=version \

Run the project

Navigate to newly created project directory (my-artifactId) and then run:

    mvn test tomcat7:run

Test in the browser

http://localhost:8080/

Install archetype locally

To install the archetype in your local repository execute the following commands:

    git clone https://github.com/kolorobot/spring-mvc-quickstart-archetype.git
    cd spring-mvc-quickstart-archetype
    mvn clean install

Create a project from a local repository

Create a new empty directory for your project and navigate into it and then run:

    mvn archetype:generate \
        -DarchetypeGroupId=pl.codeleak \
        -DarchetypeArtifactId=spring-mvc-quickstart \
        -DarchetypeVersion=1.0.0 \
        -DgroupId=my.groupid \
        -DartifactId=my-artifactId \
        -Dversion=version

Note: The above command will bootstrap a project using the archetype published in your local repository.

Switching to PostgreSQL

  • Add dependency to PostgreSQL driver in POM:
<dependency>
    <groupId>org.postgresql</groupId>
    <artifactId>postgresql</artifactId>
    <version>9.4.1207</version>
</dependency>
  • Change persistence.properties:
dataSource.driverClassName=org.postgresql.Driver
dataSource.url=jdbc:postgresql:postgres
dataSource.username=postgres
dataSource.password=postgres

hibernate.dialect=org.hibernate.dialect.PostgreSQL9Dialect
hibernate.hbm2ddl.auto=create

Enabling MongoDB repositories

  • Open MongoConfig class and uncomment the following line:
// @EnableMongoRepositories(basePackageClasses = Application.class)

Now you can add repositories to your project:

@Repository
public interface MyRepository extends MongoRepository<MyDocument, String> {

}
