Maven

The maven dependencies needed to run an application with AWE engine are the next ones:

<dependency>
<groupId>com.almis.awe</groupId>
<artifactId>awe-spring-boot-starter</artifactId>
<version>${awe.version}</version>
</dependency>
<dependency>
<groupId>com.almis.awe</groupId>
<artifactId>awe-client-angular</artifactId>
<version>${awe.version}</version>
</dependency>

Add the maven dependency plugin to retrieve the generic screens and the client engine sources:

<plugin>
<groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
<artifactId>maven-dependency-plugin</artifactId>
<executions>
<execution>
<phase>prepare-package</phase>
<id>unpack awe-generic-screens</id>
<goals>
<goal>unpack-dependencies</goal>
</goals>
<configuration>
<includeGroupIds>com.almis.awe</includeGroupIds>
<includeArtifactIds>awe-generic-screens</includeArtifactIds>
<includes>schemas/**</includes>
<outputDirectory>${project.build.directory}/classes/static/</outputDirectory>
</configuration>
</execution>
<execution>
<phase>prepare-package</phase>
<id>unpack awe-client-angular</id>
<goals>
<goal>unpack-dependencies</goal>
</goals>
<configuration>
<includeGroupIds>com.almis.awe</includeGroupIds>
<includeArtifactIds>awe-client-angular</includeArtifactIds>
<includes>images/**,fonts/**,js/**,css/**,less/**</includes>
<outputDirectory>${project.build.directory}/classes/static/</outputDirectory>
</configuration>
</execution>
</executions>
</plugin>

We use webpack to compile all javascript and less files

<plugin>
<groupId>com.github.eirslett</groupId>
<artifactId>frontend-maven-plugin</artifactId>
<executions>
<execution>
<id>install node and yarn</id>
<goals>
<goal>install-node-and-yarn</goal>
</goals>
<configuration>
<nodeVersion>v8.12.0</nodeVersion>
<yarnVersion>v1.10.1</yarnVersion>
</configuration>
</execution>
<execution>
<id>yarn install</id>
<goals>
<goal>yarn</goal>
</goals>
<configuration>
<arguments>install</arguments>
</configuration>
</execution>
<execution>
<id>webpack</id>
<goals>
<goal>webpack</goal>
</goals>
<configuration>
<arguments>--output-path "${project.build.frontend}"</arguments>
</configuration>
</execution>
</executions>
</plugin>
