5 minutes Introduction

This session teaches you how to build your first Uberfire App in just 5 minutes.


This guide assumes you have the following software set up and working on your computer:

  • A Java Development Kit (JDK) version 8 or newer.

Microsoft Windows users: be sure to use a 64-bit version of the JDK because Uberfire requires more heap space than can be addressed by a 32-bit VM.

  • Maven 3.x

Creating your first App

In a command line, run the archetype to create your first app.

 mvn archetype:generate -B \
-DarchetypeGroupId=org.uberfire \
-DarchetypeArtifactId=uberfire-project-archetype \
-DarchetypeVersion=1.0.0.Beta1 \
-DgroupId=org.uberfire \
-DartifactId=demo \
-Dversion=1.0-SNAPSHOT \
-Dpackage=org.uberfire \

Run it and then you should see the message:
