On this page, we are going to create cxf-se service unit. .

Using a Maven archetype to create the service unit project

ServiceMix provides several Maven archetypes to help you create your projects more rapidly and reliably. We start off by using the servicemix-cxf-se-service-unit archetype, which is used for creating a servicemix-cxf-se service unit project.

From our tutorial project directory, where we already have the parent pom.xml, we run this command to create a service unit project.

c:\home\Diplomka\_mySA\tutorial-wsdl-cxf-service>mvn archetype:create -Darchetyp
eGroupId=org.apache.servicemix.tooling -DarchetypeArtifactId=servicemix-cxf-se-s
ervice-unit -DgroupId=org.apache.servicemix.examples -DartifactId=my-cxf-se-su

Maven executes the archetype and reports BUILD SUCCESSFUL when it's done.

What is being generated?

First of all, the archetype creates the project directory my-cxf-se-su, containing:

  • a pom.xml file for building the service unit project
  • a directory src/main/resources, where is xbean.xml file for configuring the service unit
  • a directory src/main/java, where is com/mycompany/ExampleService.java for implementing our service.

Because we started Maven's archetype:create from the directory containing our parent pom.xml, Maven has also added a module to the parent pom.xml.


Now, we will have to configure the service unit to provide the services we want.
