Archetypes in MAVEN

     MAVEN is providing Standard directory structures to prepare projects depending on the ARCHETYPE selection.
To create sample MAVEN standalone application directory structure we will use the following command on command prompt .
C:\ashok\maven>mvn archetype:create -DgroupId=com.ashok -DartifactId= sample  -Dpackagename=com.ashok.bankapp

Steps to Create First Project in MAVEN In Standalone
☀ Install MAVEN Software
☀ Create MAVEN Project
☀ Write Java Code
☀ Compile Java Code
☀ Execute Java Application

1. Install MAVEN Software
1. download file from internet []
2. Unzip file under C drive and we will get apache-maven-3.5.4 folder.
3. Set the following Environment Variables in System.
    a) JAVA_HOME: C:/Java/jdk1.8.0;
    b) path: C:/Java/jdk1.8.0/bin;C:\apache-maven-3.5.4\bin;
    c) M2_HOME: C:/apache-maven-3.5.4
    d) MAVEN_HOME: C:/apache-maven-3.5.4 [Optional]
4. Test MAVEN Installation
    Open Command prompt and use the following command.
        C:\apache-maven-3.5.4\bin>mvn --version
    Apache Maven 3.5.4 (1edded0938998edf8bf061f1ceb3cfdeccf443fe; 2018-06-
    Maven home: C:\apache-maven-3.5.4\bin\..
    Java version: 1.8.0, vendor: Oracle Corporation, runtime: C:\Java\jdk1.8.0\jre
    Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: Cp1252
    OS name: "windows 8.1", version: "6.3", arch: "x86", family: "windows".

2. Create MAVEN Project
    a. Create a seperate folder for MAVEN applications
    b. Use the following command on Command prompt.
    E:/mvn_projects>mvn archetype:generate
    c. Provide archetype Number:1202 [ for maven-archetype-quickstart application]
    d. Provide archetype version number : 7
    e. Provide "groupId" value: com.ashok
    f. Provide "archetype" value : sampleapp
    g. Provide "version" number : 1.0 or 1.0-SNAPSHOT
    h. Provide "package" name : com.ashok
    i. Provide "Y" to confirm all the above detail.
If we do the above steps then MAVEN will create quick start project.

3. Write Java Code
package com.ashok;

public class App {
   public static void main( String[] args ) {
      System.out.println( "Welcome to Waytoeasylearn" );
4. Compile Java Code
     To Compile JAVA code, first, go to application folder then use the following command on command prompt.
E:\mvn_projects\sampleapp>mvn compile
     If we use the above command then MAVEN will compile JAVA files and generates the .class files by creating "target" folder under "application folder".
5. Execute MAVEN Project
IN Two ways we are able to execute MAVEN Project.
1. Execute Test case directly
2. Execute Main App by creating project.

1. Execute Test case directly:
     E:\mvn_projects\sampleapp>mvn test

2. Execute Main App by creating project.
     a. Create jar file for the project
     E:\mvn_projects\sampleapp>mvn package
     b. Set classpath environment variable to the generated jar file:
    E:\mvn_projects\sampleapp>set classpath=E:\mvn_projects\sampleapp\target\sampleapp-1.0.jar;
     Execute Main Class:
     E:\mvn_projects\sampleapp>java com.ashok.App
     c) Welcome to Waytoeasylearn
