FlutterCode has released Knappsack, a set of Java EE 6 Maven Archetypes to help developers get started on their Java EE 6 projects and also to learn more about the features of Java EE 6 and how they integrate together.
Of the archetypes included, two are empty projects with one being completely empty. There is a Sandbox project which contains a simple model with sample data to play around and experiment with. Extending that is the sandbox-demo archetype which produces a full CRUD application out of the box using only the core features of Java EE 6. This lets developers see a project written with the different pieces of Java EE 6 and how they all integrate together. It also demonstrates a number of new feaures in Java EE 6 such as :
- Conversations (including persistence)
- JSF Page Parameters
- Bookmarkable URLs
- Ajax with JSF 2.0
- Dependency Injection with CDI
- CDI Events
|Archetype Name||Description |
|jee6-basic||Empty application with just a bean that returns a message to a JSF page|
|jee6-minimal||Empty application with just a bean that returns a message to a JSF page|
|jee6-sandbox||Includes a sample page to test JPA, JSF and validation|
