Spring MVC JPA Tutorial - Maven Project
The Spring MVC JPA tutorial provides step by step instructions on how to build a simple Java/JPA Spring MVC database driven web application in Eclipse or NetBeans.
Building a new application step by step is an effective way to learn - but if you prefer, you may download and run the finished application as a Maven project:
Spring MVC JPA - Maven Project (8KB)
If Maven is installed - extract the zip and run the application from the command line:
> mvn package jetty:run
The current directory should be
guestbook-spring (containing the
pom.xml file), and port 8080 has to be available for the Jetty embedded server.
It is not necessary 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:

- Spring MVC JPA Tutorial - NetBeans Project
- Spring MVC JPA Tutorial - IntelliJ Project
NetBeans IDE and IntelliJ IDEA have built in Maven support.
