J2EE Maven Archetype example

I just watched the “Crash Course to Official Vaadin Maven Archetypes Webinar” and it mentioned the J2EE Integration Maven Archetype. Do you know when this archetype will be available? I want to create a CRUD application using JPA, EJBs, CDI …etc. but I don’t know where to begin. I’m new to Vaadin.


At the moment, it looks like the Spring version of the archetype will be released first. It is partly implemented, but waiting for Vaadin Spring final release and some other improvements.

The JEE archetype will follow sometime after that, and will be quite similar to the Spring version apart from using CDI for dependency injection and other JEE technologies where appropriate.

Our product manager hasn’t scheduled it at
so I cannot promise any specific release date and I’m afraid it will not be at the top of the priority list in the next few weeks. In the meanwhile, I’d recommend taking a look at
Vaadin CDI tutorial
and e.g.
this article on DeltaSpike Data
its example project
, which also demonstrates other data libraries for JEE. Also check out
this Vaadin JEE example project
, which relies heavily also on Matti Tahvonen’s
Viritin add-on
