= Using mvn: Archetypes =

Maven2 uses application templates called '''''archetypes''''' to jump start the creation of
a project directory.  Different types of applications use different archetypes.  For example,
there are different archetypes for projects which produce a '''.jar''', '''.war''', or '''.ear'''
artifact, or for '''Maven2 plugins'''.

Let's create a project which produces a '''.jar''' file (the default archetype).  Navigate
to a directory '''above''' where you what your project directory to be created, and issue
this command:
mvn archetype:create -DartifactId=myProjectDirName -DgroupId=com.mycompany.myproject

 * The '''archetype:create''' argument tells Maven2 that we will be using the '''archetype'''
plugin and invoking its  '''create''' goal.
 * The '''artifactId''' property corresponds to the name of the project directory which will
be created.  
 * The '''groupId''' property correspons to the package structure that will be created in
your project directory.
