Starting a project from scratch with Maven is not difficult but SeedStack makes it simpler with its generator. This guide goes through the generation process, step-by-step.
IBM WebSphere Application Server (WAS) is a complex Web application server that can pose some challenges to developers. The goal of this guide is to aggregate useful information about deploying SeedStack application on WAS successfully.
JAX-RS is a specification providing a standard way to write REST resources in Java. SeedStack implements the JAX-RS standard through the Jersey 2 implementation.
The Representational State Transfer (REST) architectural style was defined in 2000 by Roy Fielding. This architectural style defines a set of constraints based on the Web architecture.
SeedStack projects created by the generate goal of the SeedStack Maven plugin are designed to be run from command-line with an embedded Web server. You can convert this kind of project to a classic WAR.
SeedStack is an extensible solution that can be enriched with add-ons to provide new functionality or features. Writing an add-on is not a difficult task as it is very similar to writing an application but some rules and conventions must be obeyed. This guide will describe these rules and conventions.
Sometimes there is a need to use a development version of a SeedStack component in your project, for testing purposes. This guide will help you configure Maven to access SeedStack SNAPSHOT dependencies.
