Check out this 8-step guide to see how you can increase your productivity by skipping slow application redeploys and by implementing application profiling, as you code! Brought to you in partnership with ZeroTurnaround.

To simplify the development of Web projects on Apache Karaf/Apache ServiceMix, we have created archetypes to setup WAR or WAB projects. They are very basic but they can be enriched with framework like Struts 2, Wicket, plain JSP or MyFaces JSF as they are currently supported on Apache Karaf - ServiceMix.

For the GWT users, it exists now an archetype which will create a GWT project. To create such a project, you must generate a project from the archetype

mvn archetype:generate \
   -DarchetypeGroupId=org.ops4j.pax.web.archetypes\
   -DarchetypeArtifactId=wab-gwt-archetype \
   -DarchetypeVersion=2.0.0-SNAPSHOT \
   -DgroupId=com.mycompany \
   -DartifactId=hello \
   -Dversion=1.0


build next the WAB using hello/mvn clean install

and deploy it on Apache Karaf


Verify that the web site is well registered :


Next, you can navigate to your application in your browser and click on the button to say Hello.


Remark : A WAB project is nothing more than a WAR excepted it is packaged as a bundle file, that we have removed the WEB-INF/lib dependencies and create a MANIFEST file containing the OSGI instructions.
