Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-890) Maven archetype for creating Avro service projects
Date Wed, 21 Sep 2011 20:45:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-890?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13109861#comment-13109861

Scott Carey commented on AVRO-890:

For a released artifact, this is not a problem.  The archetype will work fine because it won't
point to a SNAPSHOT.

In the case of testing the archetype then, it either needs to point to a released version,
or we must install avro-maven-plugin before the archetype plugin forks the build.  

Or we could release it and version the archetype separately from the main project, but that
has many other serious drawbacks.

>          Components: java

>            Reporter: Stephen Gargan
>            Assignee: Stephen Gargan
>            Priority: Minor
>              Labels: archetype, maven
>             Fix For: 1.6.0
>         Attachments: archetypes.patch, archetypes.patch, archetypes.patch
> I've put together the beginnings of an maven archetypes subproject in the java module
to help folks kickstart avro projects. The first archetype creates a simple avro based ordering
service using the netty transport and includes an integration test for the service. The service
is very naive, though its really only the plumbing that is important and the example is illustrative
enough to get people going.
> Once built, it can be added to the local archetypes catalog via
> mvn archetype:crawl
> and then will be available via the generate plugin
> mvn archetype:generate
> or it can be invoked directly as follows
> mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeArtifactId=avro-service-archetype -DarchetypeGroupId=org.apache.avro
-DgroupId=org.simple -DartifactId=simple-service -Dversion=1.0-SNAPSHOT   
> The parent pom contains common config for generating a pom for the archetype that references
the current avro build version. This takes some slight of hand with maven resources to insert
the version and will be reusable for other archetypes in the future.
> I intend putting together a map-reduce archetype soon and am open to suggestions for
other archetypes that might be useful. Perhaps one that included the code from AVRO-883 to
kick start a basic serialization project?
