JPA Web App Tutorial - Maven Project
Building a new application step by step is an effective way to learn - but if you prefer, you may download and run the result application as a Maven project:
If Maven is installed - extract the zip and run the application from the command line by:
> mvn package jetty:run
The current directory should be guestbook-web (containing the pom.xml file) and port 8080 has to be available for the Jetty embedded server.
No need to download and install ObjectDB or a Java web server - Maven will download the ObjectDB jar and the Jetty embedded server automatically.
When the Jetty server is ready - open your browser at http://localhost:8080/Guestbook/
You may also open and run the Maven project in your IDE:
NetBeans IDE and IntelliJ IDEA have built in Maven support.
