To facilitate the creation of sample applications for Geronimo in a more consistent way we use mvn archetype to first create a sample template. mvn is part of the apache maven project. Downloading and configuring maven is prerequisite for creating your own sample. As maven needs a fully functional internet link, take care of its proxy configuration which you can set in maven_home/conf/setting.xml
To create your own sample using this template follow these steps:
You now add/delete child mvn modules under samples/mySample to suit your requirement.
Your sample binary will be called samples/mySample/mySample-ear-myVersion.ear. There will be a samples/mySample/docs directory containing the javadocs and source xref for your samples.
