Maven Repository Configuration

While we are packaging up Stardust for Eclipse, you can get free access to the Infinity Process Platform - the product Stardust originates from. After you followed the instructions on how to gain access to the Maven Repository, you can authenticate against the repository with the username and password you picked when registering. To access the repository from Maven make sure the repository is configured in your Maven settings.xml as shown below:

Also configure the correct credentials for the repository as shown here:

If you don't want to specify your password in clear text, you can encode it in the repository web portal:

  1. Go to Repository and login using your credentials
  2. Go to your user profile (link behind user name in upper right corner)
  3. Enter your password and press the Unlock button
  4. Copy the username and password section into your settings.xml as shown above

Maven Archetype

Starting from version 6.0.3 the ipp-libs Maven repository ( contains a Maven archetype

( that can be use to create the following Maven projects:

  • Engine runtime EAR project for JBOSS 5.1, EJB deplyoment, artefactId=ipp-archetype-jb51-ipp-ear
  • Engine runtime WAR project for JBOSS 5.1, Spring deplyoment, artefactId=ipp-archetype-jb51-ipp-portal-war
  • Reporting runtime WAR project for JBOSS 5.1, artefactId=ipp-archetype-jb51-reporting-war
  • Engine runtime WAR project for Tomcat 6, Spring deployment, artefactId=ipp-archetype-tc6-ipp-portal-war
  • Reporting runtime WAR project for Tomcat 6, artefactId=ipp-archetype-tc6-reporting-war
  • Console command line tool client environment project, Spring client, artefactId=ipp-archetype-console-spring-client
  • Sysconsole command lient tool client environment project (direct database access via JDBC), artefactId=ipp-archetype-sysconsole-client

For other application servers the example project coming closest to the target deployment can be adjusted. Additional archetypes for other deployment scenarios will be added soon.

It is important to execute the goal dependency:unpack  after the project has been created. This can be automated by using the -Dgoals parameter when the project is created.

Example Usage

mvn archetype:generate 
-DarchetypeGroupId=com.infinity.bpm.archetypes -DarchetypeArtifactId=ipp-archetype-tc6-ipp-portal-war -DarchetypeVersion=6.0.3 
-DgroupId=org.eclipse.stardust.test -DartifactId=stardust-portal-war -Dversion=1.0-SNAPSHOT -Dgoals=dependency:unpack

If the repository is not configured in your settings.xml then you have to supply the repository URL as a parameter to the mvn command:


M2 Eclipse Plugin

The Maven Eclipse plugin is extremely helpful when working with maven projects under eclipse. It allows you to run maven goal via the IDE, manages you project build path based on the maven dependencies, provides a POM editor, a dependency hierarchy view, a dependency graph and more.

In Eclipse Helios (3.6) it is not yet part of the default plugins. Installation instructions for Eclipse Helios can be found here:
