[/code]Is there currently a general problem with the archetype?

What maven version do you have?


Works for me. Try again, maybe?


I think it is the same problem reported in!/thread/15182890

It seems that starting from 7.7.4 the parent of the archetype has been changed from vaadin-parent to vaadin-archetypes, but the latter is not deployed on maven central

vaadin-archetypes is missing also in vaadin prereleases repository

I can confirm this. We are going to release 8.0.0.rc2 today to fix this.

Actually, this issue was caused by the maven-archetype-plugin 3.0.0 update, released last week. It seems to require the parent of the archetype to be deployed.

For 7.7.4-7.7.7 we have fixed this for archetype plugin version 3.0.0 by deploying
to maven central.

For 8.0.0.rc1 and 8.0.0.rc2 it is not working with archetype plugin version 3.0.0 because it is ignoring the -DartifactRepository parameter. You can get around that by using previous version of archetype plugin, with e.g.

mvn org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:2.4:generate -DarchetypeVersion=8.0.0.rc1 -DarchetypeGroupId=com.vaadin -DarchetypeArtifactId=vaadin-archetype-application -DartifactId=vaikeaa -Dversion=1.0-SNAPSHOT -DarchetypeRepository=
