             Summary: New maven archetype for generating a template MetExtractor project
                 Key: OODT-539
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OODT-539
             Project: OODT
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: cas-mvn-plugins
    Affects Versions: 0.4
            Reporter: Rishi Verma
            Assignee: Rishi Verma
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 0.5

Create a new maven archetype for allowing developers to quickly generate MetExtractor projects
on their own.

The rationale for creating this archetype is to make it simpler and quicker to write new met
extractors. Writing new met extractors is pretty easy, but establishing the correct maven
directory structure, pom file(s), and build cycle can be tricky. I myself often just replicate
the directory structure and pom files from other projects instead of creating/writing new
met extractor projects from scratch. This can however lead to human errors and also unwanted
code and config. Having an archetype which generates a preferred met extractor-specific maven
directory structure, pom files, and template met extractor code would make the job of creating
new custom met extractors more consistent and automatic.

The proposed capability is the following:
1. New archetype to generate a full maven project for writing custom met extractor(s)
2. Pre-populate generated project with template MetExtractor(s) which work out-of-the box
and make it obvious WHERE developer should add their custom extraction code
3. Ensure generated project pom allows a build of met extractor project out of the box

To start out, I would recommend we include an extended CmdLineMetExtractor class which works
out-of-the box. We can include more custom met extractors and template code later.
