This archetype is DEPRECATED. Use the new woapplication-archetype instead.
"maven-archetype-woapplication" is a model for WebObjects applications creation. If you start a project using this archetype, all the basic WebObjects files are generated following the standard directory layout.
How to use
This archetype allows you to generate a template for a WebObjects application. So, creating the template of the application is as easy as using the command:
This command creates a blank WebObjects application with groupId=my.group and artifactId=my-app. Both values can be changed to adjust your needs.
Standard Directory Layout for WebObjects Applications
It's a working in progress task.
"Having a common directory layout would allow for users familiar with one Maven project to immediately feel at home in another Maven project. The advantages are analogous to adopting a site-wide look-and-feel." (http://maven.apache.org/guides/introduction/introduction-to-the-standard-directory-layout.html)
"maven-archetype-woapplication" provides some additional directories to conform to WebObjects development in addition to the Maven Standard Directory Layout.
