Maven demo

You can create a simple demo project using Maven with the following command:

mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=com.autobizlogic.abl -DarchetypeArtifactId=demo-archetype -DarchetypeVersion=2.1.4 -DgroupId=com.acme -DartifactId=demo -Dversion=1.0-SNAPSHOT -DarchetypeCatalog=

This will create a project called demo (feel free to name it anything you want, but we assume "demo" hereafter). You can also change the groupId if you happen not to work for Acme. Then:

cd demo

mvn tomcat:run

and connect to:


That's it! You now have a running ABL project. It's not sexy, but it demonstrates the basic principles of declarative transaction logic.
