About the AppFuse Maven Plugin (AMP)
This plugin currently does two things:
For more documentation on this plugin, see its Maven-generated site.
Generating CRUD with AMP
Using this plugin, you can run the following command to generate CRUD screens/classes for a POJO:
If you don't specify the entity name, you're prompted for it. After generating the code, the plugin will install it for you as well, unless you specify
-DdisableInstallation=true. If you disable installation, you can install it using:
To remove the installed artifacts, use:
If your entity is not defined in hibernate.cfg.xml, it will be added. In a modular project, these commands must be run in the "core" and "web" modules. The plugin is smart enough to figure out when it should/should not generate stuff based on the packaging type (jar vs. war).
There's also a goal that allows you to generate model objects from database tables:
Once you've generated and installed the POJO, you can generated crud for it using the
By default the generated code makes use of the GenericDao and GenericManager. If you do not want this add this to your pom file:
Customizing AMP Templates
The FreeMarker templates that AMP uses to generate code are packaged in the plugin itself. Since version 2.0.2, you can copy the code generation templates into your project using the following command:
Installing AppFuse's source into your project
The good news is creating an "old style" project is now pretty easy. If you create a new project using 2.0-m5+, you can now use:
This goal will convert your project to use all of AppFuse's source and remove all dependencies on AppFuse. It will also refactor all package names and directories to match your project's groupId.
What the full-source plugin does:
- Exports all sources from Subversion into your project. It reads the dao.framework and web.framework properties to determine what you need.
- Removes warpath plugin from pom.xml.
- Calculates dependencies by reading pom.xml files form the various AppFuse modules. It replaces your dependencies with these new ones. The order of the dependencies added is alphabetical based on groupId.
- Reads properties from the root AppFuse pom.xml and adds the ones that don't exist to your project.
- Renames packages to match your project's groupId.
