Creating UF Tasks Project

Your UF Tasks project will follow the standard Maven project layout. So let's create it using our archetype.

Cloning Uberfire

First, let's clone the Uberfire repository, so we have the most recent archetype available. Go to your preferred directory and run one of the following commands:

HTTPS mode:

$ git clone

or SSH mode:

$ git clone

Microsoft Windows Users: Be sure to set the git core.longpaths configuration variable to "true". Some of Uberfire's file names are longer than 255 characters and the git shell will complain about "Filename too long" and simply skip over them.

Building Uberfire

Now let's build Uberfire, and make our archetype available for use:

$ cd uberfire
$ mvn clean install -DskipTests=true -Dgwt.compiler.skip=true

This will create the archetype and store it in your ~/.m2 directory.

Creating UF Tasks Project

In a command line, go to your preferred directory and run this command to create your first app:

$ mvn archetype:generate -B \
-DarchetypeGroupId=org.uberfire \
-DarchetypeArtifactId=uberfire-project-archetype \
-DarchetypeVersion=1.0.0-SNAPSHOT \
-DgroupId=org.uberfire \
-DartifactId=uftasks \
-Dpackage=org.uberfire \

And then you should see a message like this:

[INFO] ---------------------------------------------------------
[INFO] ---------------------------------------------------------
[INFO] Total time: 3:32.347s
[INFO] Finished at: Wed Jan 14 20:30:27 BRST 2015
[INFO] Final Memory: 29M/959M
[INFO] ---------------------------------------------------------

Building your App

To build your app, go to directory uftasks, build the project in maven and wait for the build to finish.

$ cd uftasks
$ mvn clean install

You should see the maven build success message again.

See it work!

How about running our project?

$ cd uftasks-showcase/uftasks-webapp
$ mvn clean gwt:run

Wait for GWT console to build your app:

gwt build

Click on "Launch Default Browser" to open your Uberfire App. Log in with the username "admin" and the password "admin". You should see our Hello World screen!

app start

When you see that, you are good to go.
